The bigger the bill, the harder to swallow the meal

Wednesday, October 25th, 2006

Eating out in London is expensive – you always get a big bill. Of course it helps if you bring your own, I suppose.
This rather horrific photo was captured by Cathal McNaughton in St Jame’s Park, London, and shows a pelican trying to swallow a (strangely calm-looking) pigeon.

I thought it looked odd, and wondered how the photographer happened to be in the right place at the right time. A quick Google search suggests that it’s not as rare an occurrence as you might think, as this video from a few days ago makes clear:
