This Gull waited patiently for the roiling surf at Hammonasset Beach to stir up some lunch. Spotted it!
He rose out of the water with a treasure.
It appeared he knew the key to opening said treasure.
However, he wasn’t rewarded as the shell bounced off the sand with a thud, not the sharp “crack” often heard when Gulls drop clams or snails on a pier or rocks.
Undeterred, he strutted off to try again, leaving the unopened shell behind.
