My first comment would be a question: How did you get so close to these birds? Or did you have a very long lens? They're beautiful!

Fantastic photo to get them together like that. Diane

@Jacob: This small island is a bird sanctuary where visits are very controlled. Birds are so used to people that they feel perfectly safe when you get this close.

Hi there - this is a bird I have wanted to see for a long time - they are found here, but only much further north - I suppose that's what holidays are for!

Cheers Stewart M

Birds have such lovely clean lines ... real elegance.

Much prefer nature to the America's Cup :-)

Francisca said...

They may feel comfortable, you say, JM, but to me it looks like she's giving you the eye for disturbing a private moment! LOL!
