Ring-billed Gull’s Breakfast

This ring-billed Gull kept flapping a few feet out of the water then diving into the water fishing for food. After watching it for a while I realized it had gotten a large carp and was eating it. It was a ways out on the lake and I only brought my 300mm f/4 because of its close focusing ability for ice bubbles. I used a 2x teleconverter for some, a 1.4x teleconverter for others and to get even closer I stacked the 2x teleconverter with the 1.4x teleconverter and stopped down to f/16 for a few. It was fun to watch.
