Seagull Nearly Becomes Lunch

This is the dramatic moment a seagull on the prowl for food almost ends up as dinner itself by getting dangerously close to the gaping bill of a peckish pelican. And just as it looks set to be swallowed whole it makes an incredible escape to safety and leaves the pelican in a complete flap. Stunned photographer Yuri Belyaev, 35, caught the remarkable last ditch escape while on holiday with his friend in Namibia.
