Glaucous Winged Gull Flipping Red Rock Crab
The gull dispatched the crab pretty promptly. He flipped the crab onto it's back and then ripped off the legs. One he had leg holes, he ripped open the shell and ate the body of the crab.
Species: Cancer productus (red rock crab), Larus glaucescens (glaucous-winged gull)

Red Breasted Merganser On Rock
I'm impressed by how many different patterns and colours make up this duck's body. It isn't random - there is or was a reason for each bit - they each conveyed an advantage.
