I work in Newport, RI a lot. Whenever I do, I ALWAYS try to stop at the beach. I love photographing the waves. They are always different depending on the weather and today they were pure aqua/gray. While I was watching the waves crash I noticed one of the seagulls messing with a seashell. He was clearly trying to eat whatever was inside. Then the coolest thing happened. The seagull grabbed the shell, flew up into the air + would drop it back on the ground. He was trying to smash it open!! He did it over and over... I couldn't stop watching. He moved so quickly it was hard to capture on camera. However I did get a few shots with the shell in in his mouth in the air. Check them out below.
