03:59 pm - Photo from the Orkney trip ...
I took this while on the ferry from Stromness to Scrabster (in between a zillion photos of the Old Man of Hoy). Opinions ?

It looks like it's rendered rather than photographed. Very cool.

Very nice.

It's a fulmar by the way, in case you didn't know.

It's highly reminiscent of a photo by Chris Packham (whom some of your UK correspondents will remember from The Really Wild Show, a kids natural history programme on BBC 1). His version of it placed highly in the Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition. If I can find it online anywhere, I'll post a link - I think yours would stand the comparison. It's a great shot.

That's fantastic. And you did wonderfully well to spot the opportunity take advantage of it.

Interesting. Not quite in ground effect and not quite soaring. Cool.
