Mirror Gannets

Published by at 7:30 am under Travel,Water and Shore

Northern gannets were the most numerous sea bird on my whale watch trip this year.  Some were adults, some were juveniles, but few had the peachy colored head feathers of these breeding adults.

This pair was a lucky shot.  When the photographer took their picture they were mirror images of each other.

Posed perfectly. Frozen in time.

    Yes, we saw one humpback whale. It was a very quiet day on the water.
