Glaucous gull

By hibbz  
This was taken in Finland, there was a pair of Glaucous gulls, they had killed this young kittiwake chick & wer taking it in turn to feed on it. To capture it on a small piece of ice makes this image for me. I know its not nice for the chick but they are all fighting to survive there.
