Northern Gannet.

What a magnificent bird.
This is a beautiful photo, really nice composition.

They lend themselves to photography, but that still needs the skills for an effective capture.
To me there's something special about those birds. They're huge but graceful, different and also colourful.
Must be awesome to see them soaring through the air.

That’s a beautifully captured flight shot Melissa.

Very nice flight pose Lenny. Looks like the beginning of a dive.

Thanks, Richard. Even more important for capturing these guys is the weather... it's foggy there (Cape St. Mary's) 200 days per year, on average. So, I was very happy the weather cooperated that day. :-D It is an incredible experience to watch them gliding through the air. Especially since they can fly by so close.
