Crab To Go

I was testing the spot metering on my camera. I usually shoot evaluative and wanted to compare it to spot metering. A seagull was flying towards me. I never shoot seagulls anymore, since I have a zillion shots and they are so common, but what the hell, I was doing a test.

I was so focused on keeping the center AF point on the gull, that I did not notice the crab until after I completed the series.

What a lucky shot!
