you have really nailed these. They are super impressive.
What a huge shell. Must be fascinating to watch them deal with that.
Amazing photos.

Thank you very much, Richard! Now that you mentioned it, there is actually a story here. While the gull was trying to eat the clam, a snowy egret flew over and tried to take over the clam.

However, the egret lacks the serious Skilz that is needed to crack open the clam, so it gave up eventually. The gull got the job done and ate the clam in the end.
