Our neighbour to the left (when facing the lake) has a floating dock (in addition to their regular dock) and it was there that this gull caught my eye. It was not just resting there as gulls often do. It was busy working at its newly-caught dinner. It dropped and picked up this small catfish so many times. I figured it was trying to get the angle just right so that he could swallow it and turn his sights to the next catch.
Here's how that went.
Pick it up by the fin. Stand there like that for a few moments looking utterly perplexed.
Put it down and figure out your next move.
Pick it up, once more. This thing wriggles too much. Plus it's got googly eyes. What to do.. what to do?
Go on.. give it a good shake.
Yup, it's well and truly dead.
Now this you can work with. Open wide.
That's better. In you go.
Down the hatch. Now, where's dessert?
