Since a while two Common Eiders (Eidereend) are hanging around in the Scheveningen Harbor. When I saw them today, it was feeding time. Nice to see them dive for food, mainly crab. But what a struggle …. It seems quite a hassle to eat these little crabs. For several minutes at a time the ducks are working on it, often throwing the crab away and diving after it again. The longest time I clocked (based on my exif data) was almost 10 minutes ๐Ÿ˜‰ ……

  1. Hey Hans,

    Toch leuke beelden om te zien hoe deze Eider worstelt met zijn maaltijdje. Helaas niet het Hans Overduin standpunt, daarvoor had je natuurlijk je waadpak aan moeten hebben. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Volgende keer weer echte sfeer plaatjes met een fijn standpunt hรจ?
