Watch closely . . .

Pretty good, huh?

* I know some people are sure what the Eider is eating ... it's a Crab! First it rips the legs off then sucks/pulls out the body!!!

What's in his mouth? A clam?? Well, if he cracked the sucker open he deserves an award!

OMP, it's a crab! I had to blow it up 400% to see it, what a catch. And what a great group of shots.

For anyone who isn't sure, it's a Crab the Eider is having for lunch! How does it do that with no hands?? Pretty tricky tongue work I'd say!

Marie Höglund said...

Wow thats awesome to shoot this. :-)

that is pretty good -- for sure. I really do admire your patience in getting this whole sequence. Beautiful.
