And, I watched a gull through its entire "I snagged a crab, and this is how I eat it" routine; a few jab it-drop it-grab it-repeat cycles until the crab stopped wiggling; devour the inside; then eat the shell and claws in small chunks by crunching them up and swallowing them. So interesting. I really thought the gull would eat the tender innards. (Definitely the first time I have used the word "innards" in a blog post; can't promise it will be the last).
I added a couple of photos here of my sketch without watercolor and the finished piece with the subject in the distance.
Another great afternoon. Thanks for looking.
