Here is this week’s submission to Leanne Cole’s Monochrome Madness Challenge. Click on the link to view some lovely black and white photography.
Following on from yesterday’s post, this image shows some gulls patrolling the receding tideline, and one of them has found a clam. When they couldn’t break into them, many of the gulls were dropping the clams from a height to crack them open, and then swooping down to capture their prize before somebody else rushed in. A few smarty-pants were flying up to drop their clams on the pier decking, as seen in the images below. This tactic was very successful – dropping the clams onto the beach was not very effective, not surprisingly, and dropping them onto the rocks above the beach risked losing the clam between the larger rocks.
