Fish fight!

In June, the Herring Gulls' eggs have just hatched. So every little piece of food they can get for their chicks is worth fighting over. Like this poor little herring...

 

View large!!!

 

Shot taken at Ecomare, a seal shelter on Texel. We had a great great great weekend there, more shots to come! Keep an eye on the set!

 

UPDATE:

Nominated in the Dutch National Geographic Photography Contest 2009! I didn't win the grand prize, but the picture IS featured on the September page of the Dutch NG Calendar 2010! The shot is also part of an exhibition of the contest's nominees in the Royal Tropical Institute in Amsterdam!!!

 

UPDATE 2:

Now also available thru EAGER, the website with high quality photography series.
