One way to tell where the shallow areas are while kayaking is to look for the gulls near shore. They float within quick reach of the scurrying crabs below and pluck up the brave or careless. Then a quick flight to the sand to de-leg and consume its prize.

  3. I like the action shots though the crab was probably not amused.

  5. I love how the gull has twisted his head sideways to give the crab a quizzical look in the first one. Or maybe he just had to go sideways in order to grab a side leg without being pinched – but anyway it’s a great image!
