Pounce by dmariewms

Pounce

He was going after an oyster, over and over again. The gulls pry oysters off, then drop them on the bricks to break them open. He would float for a bit, twitch, and then leap straight under the water. That twitch was all I needed to time him. I got 11 shots in various stages of the leap, and only one of him floating (he faked me out). It must have been one heck of an oyster, because he was still going after it when I had to leave.
