summer fishing focus

crowding annoying seagulls 

one angry spoonbill

Water birds at Ricketts Point Marine Park will always offer surprises if you have time to wait and watch. This solitary Royal Spoonbill seemed to find  a fish or perhaps missed catching one or maybe just became fed up with the constant chattering and agitating of the nearby seagulls. Whatever the reason it suddenly lifted one leg, pivoted and turned lashing out at the nearest gull with its beak and receiving  immediate verbal abuse from another seagull. This all happened in a matter of seconds. Luckily I was focussed on the Spoonbill and with the advantage of instant snapping from my digital SLR was able to catch the sequence.
