  1. Amazing captures and blog here! I initially noticed your “seagull vs eel” shot. That looks like a huge (do you know what kind?) eel caught and going for an unwanted flight here!

    So the bird was really able to win the struggle and gulp down that big fish okay?? Does the prey put up a good fight, if eaten, does the unlucky fish get swallowed wriggling/alive all the way as well?!
