Editor’s note:

The gull patrol

Seattle Times reader Nick Krantz’s photo of gulls hectoring a bald eagle off Alki Beach.

Photographer: Nick Krantz, Tukwila

Photo taken: May 19, Alki Beach, Seattle

Photographer's description: "I was photographing a bald eagle with my Canon Rebel T2i when the eagle took off due to harassment from these two gulls. In the background is the Bremerton ferry."

Expert says: "This photo made me do a double take. Shouldn’t the bald eagle be chasing the gulls? I enjoy the moment of the gull squawking at the eagle and that added layer — so we’re not staring at a flat image — of the ferry in the background to give a sense of place. That ferry also makes my eye go in a circular motion around the frame. I might crop slightly from the bottom and sides to make that yelling gull a bit more prominent in the frame."

-- Katie G. Cotterill, Seattle Times photo staff
