Ever Ready

Seagulls stay close to the fishermen, so when something is discarded overboard (like old bait from a lobster trap), they will be there to snap it up, sometimes even before it hits the water. I love these moments in the wild. I was in my own boat, rocking in the waves some distance back, but with my telephoto lens it felt like I was right there. What an appetite! What diligence! And there I was snapping away myself, just like a hungry gull.
