bird eats seal's eye out

This picture was taken by one Natlie Tapson, she's put a few more of this odd feeding time here. Well we say it's odd but that's only because we haven't seen this combination before.

It does look like something out of a horror movie though, that second bird is just bathed in seal blood and he looks pretty evil...
