Attempted Steal 54732

A laughing gull tries the old blindside attack...

...and it's no laughing matter when it almost steals the fish
right out of the reddish egret's bill. Gulls are such thieves,
but the egret was not intimidated.

Photographed at Fulton, Texas USA.

1/800s f/6.3 at 300.0mm iso100 full exif
