Gull with Starfish

This juvenile Herring Gull had caught a starfish and seemed to have trouble working out how to swallow it. Needless to say, it succeeded in the end.

E-M1, 50-200 SWD and EC-14.

Re: Gull with Starfish

It's always fun watching something eat challenging prey. I've watched (Great) Cormorants trying to swallow eels that were longer than the birds. And have a sequence of shots of a Garter Snake eating a Leopard Frog backwards, in other words back legs first.

Nice shots Ron. The setting in the 1st is very appealing.

Never seen one with a starfish, nice bonus that. Excellent shots with good details.
