This young, ugly great skua will once be a very big, agressive bird. Adult great skua attacked me constantly while I was trying to take a picture of this youngster.

Beau portrait de ce petit, les couleurs et la prise de vue sont très bien.

Félicitations !!

Great angle and composition on an intersting subject Zeno. I tried it with a little less contrast to take off the shine and think it works. A little more light also brings it out a bit better too. I love the small water drops on the chest. Cheers, Rob

What a cute baby skua, Zeno. An uncommon subject. Sharp details and good light and POV. Well done and TFS. ; )

Hi Zeno,
I can imagine that you have done for this picture. I like this young bird. (And I doesn´t find that he is ugly. He is ... fluffy?) ;-)This is an very nice Picture. Good job.
