Juvenile Herring Gulls and The Blue Crab
Posted 20 August 2012 - 03:05 AM
Just wanted to share this with you, it was a scene I got to enjoy on 8.7.12 at Prime Hook Beach Road in Delaware. One juvenile Herring Gull got his beak on a Blue Crab (I didn't see that part). Next thing I know these two come streaking across the sky in front of me pulling maneuvers that would knock a human pilot out cold. I got off around 12 frames, none of which was too much in focus but oh well...

In this next one the crab is raising its claws like people do on roller coasters. It must have been enjoying itself if it didn't know the danger it was in...
