Here is something a bit different. This is a shot of gannets diving for fish off the Bass Rock in the North Sea off the Firth of Forth, which goes up to Edinburgh. Its a big colony.

The shot shows an adult and juvenile.

Beautiful photo Mike. Lovely clean colours.
Odd looking landing, legs all over the place. Expect he's done that thousands of time though.

Thank you so much Richard for your remarks and kind compliments.

Very nice Bill, The weather here has changed from 30c plus last week to mid teens and 4c over night. Geese and others are flying south and gone are my hummers till next year. On the bright side... cougar sightings are on the increase. lol The summer was so dry with all the fires.. Almost zero colourful flowers in the garden.
