Penobscot Bay, Maine

Penobscot Bay as seen from Spectacle Island off Cape Rosier, at low tide. There's a thriving gull rookery on Spectacle Island, a noisy, bustling community. The rookery is visited at least twice a day by bald eagles, who find it a convenient place to pick up a quick meal. The gulls do their best to drive off the predators, wheeling above the rookery, following the eagles, heckling them, to little avail.
