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.
