Caption   A gull exhibiting drop-catch behavior on Florida's Atlantic coast. The gull was repeatedly picking up a bit of flotsam from the beach, carrying it a few tens of feet high, and then dropping it. Sometimes the gull would just watch the object fall. Other times, it would dive and try to catch it.
