Gull and spidercrab

Moments before, the gull had plunged into the surf, somehow spotting the crab beneath the waves. The gull did not win the ensuing battle, as the crab got help: my 10-year old daughter chased the gull, who dropped the crab. She then carried the crab along the beach, away from the gulls, and released it. Location: Napatree Beach, Rhode Island
