Northern Gannets 2

Northern Gannets 2 

In order to capture gannets as they flew in for a landing among the many birds on Bird Rock in Cape St. Mary’s, I chose one bird and followed it as it flew towards its landing site.  Often, the winds weren’t exactly right and the bird flew off and circled to make another attempt.  As the bird neared its nesting site, it spread its wings and lowered its feet and tail feathers and dropped onto the site.  

Feel free to share with family and friends.
