The bully of Houston Ship Chanel

The normal feeding frenzy ensued 
behind our tug
as we headed up the river toward Houston, TX

The mood of the birds was joyous.
(Yes, I can tell the mood of birds, what of it?)

The fishing was good.

As I watched the flying choreography
play out behind us,
I noticed the mood change.

Suddenly I heard the theme music of "Jaws"
and watched as the bully stalked. 

 and then dove

and attacked.

Then I ran out of pictures
so that's the end of the story.

Marvelous pictures! You're making good use of your new camera and thanks for sharing with the rest of us. Hope you're running into cooler weather, too.

Come now, really? You ran out of pictures. Scary story and you left us hanging.

You completely drew me in and then just left me? Does that black creature really attack the gulls or does it go after the fish? C'mon... do tell!
