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.

And I thought they were pacifists. Never seen THAT before. Great capture!

Lovely photo. One of those the more you gaze, the more is revealed. So much to look at.
Very pleasing scene.

I certainly have never seen them behave like that before. Nice shot, Shalu.

Thank you, Richard! I don't recall them being vocal at the time. About two dozen of them were present.

Thank you very much, Mike! My first time seeing the behavior.

This is a fabulous shot, Shalu. They're awkward looking on the ground, but so graceful in the air.
