Northern Gannet (Morus bassanus) User: Stephane  (See all photos - 26)
Canada (Québec) Parc national de l'Île-Bonaventure-et-du-Rocher-Percé, Gaspésie

Last one for tonight. It's not difficult to take photos of gannets at this colony. The difficulty is in trying to isolate one interesting scene! Birds are constantly shifting up and down, getting in the way.

Here, just one bird on the edge of the colony.

The light wasn't all that great ????

It's fairly challenging to capture images of bright white birds with midday sun with barely a cloud in the sky. Plus for the majority of the day, the sun is simply not in any ideal position for bird photography! Nearing 3pm the conditions do improve, I wish we could have stayed till sundown.

That said we shoot with the light we have and do what we can. The second day (photos to come when i get to them ????) was delightfully overcast!
