Gannet (Morus bassanus)

22/02/2018

Last saturday I went out with APNAE to a trip ship around Roses Bay (Girona) to watch and photography seabirds. I was afraid duee the high possibility of seasickness working with a teleobjetive. Afterwards that was not the problem.

In my head I have a picture like this. The moment a Gannet is nearly to plunge to fish. The big trouble was the gulls (a big flock) and keeping focussed the gannet. There´s a moment, high in the sky, that tells you when he´s going to fish. Stops a little while, turn up its tail, put its neck down and let him go into the water. It´s a second, but you´ve alreday the place when it´s going to take the action, (more or less) seeing where its eyes are looking.
