A woman visiting Maine for the first time learned quickly that if you hold food up in the air by the water it's as good as gone.

Alicia Jessop, who lives in Los Angeles, was so excited to try her first lobster roll. She tried to get a nice photo of the lobster roll with a lighthouse in the background.

"This is why we can't have nice things," Jessop wrote on Twitter. "I was trying to take a picture of the lobster roll I ordered in Maine and well, this happened."

"I was really embarrassed," Jessop told WBNS. "You hear stories of people taking crazy Instagram pictures and hurting themselves and I was like, 'Oh my God, you are now that person. You just wasted $21.50 for a picture'."

As she walked back to the lobster shack to get another roll, she flipped through her camera roll and burst into laughter, realizing the only photo she had was the exact moment the seagull had swooped in to steal her sandwich.
