Catching lunch

A mink, off the Centre Island offshore breakwater.

What most impressed me was not the efficiency with which it snagged three small fish, probably goby (and a good thing, too, because there's a surplus and goby are an invasive) but that the circling gulls didn't even dip down to look at fish one and fish two while fish three was being fetched.  It takes something to get seagulls to respect your claim to a small fish.
