Anatomy of a mid-air theft by a seagull

This is the incredible moment a seagull showed off some spectacular acrobatics - by flying upside down to steal a shrimp dinner right from the mouth of an egret.

Keen photographer Andy Long, 55, captured the extraordinary scene while taking pictures of the wildlife in Fort Desoto Park in St. Petersburg, Florida.

Andy, from Denver, Colorado, said: 'It all happened with about one or two seconds - I've never seen anything like it before especially in such quick motion. It flipped upside down and grabbed the shrimp right out of the egrets beak. The momentum of tucking its head downward seemed to swing it back upright in such fluid motion'.

Gullible bird: An upside-down seagull steals a shrimp from the mouth of an egret. The moment was caught on film by an amatuer photographer in Florida

1- The approach: The seagull glides unseen from behind as the unsuspecting egret fishes a shrimp from the sea to eat for himself

2- Acrobatic stretch: Just as the egret thinks he's about to have a tasty dinner, the seagull suddenly cranes over, extending its neck and grabs the food in its beak

3- The getaway: Now upside down, the seagull has snatched the shrimp away from the egret before swooping off to enjoy the stolen meal
