Seagull Snatches Tourist’s Camera, Videos Sunset

They say the creative drive burns deeply in marine birds. Ok, they don’t, but maybe they will after seeing this video attempted by Italian tourist Nathalie Rollandin. Rollandin was filming a beautiful sunset over San Francisco in August, when a passing seagull took issue with her sense of perspective and snatched the camera from her hands.

The gull then performed a rather experimental panoramic sweep of the area, the shot framed by his own flapping wings, before deciding he "couldn’t work like this" and set the relatively unscathed camera down on a nearby pier. Still unclear is what was behind the bird’s creative decision to divert attention away from the sunset and focus instead on a decorative mast nearby. Must be a foreign film.
