WESTERN SEA GULL ATTEMPTING TO OPEN A CLAM SHELL OVER & OVER BY DROPPING IT ONTO THE SOFT BEACH. Drop the clam, see if it’s open, pick it up, drop it again, look at it from all angles. Nope it’s not open yet. Do it again & again & again. Tireless sea gull determined to have a clam for dinner. He was still working on it after I left! Pacific Beach, San Diego.
