[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
An inflight shot of the pirates of the northern atlantic (Carribean is much more pleasant, sunwise, more hidden treasures too). These birds were present in small numbers almost everywhere on the west side of iceland, hijacking other birds' meals.

Hello Jeroen,

A fine in-flight capture, full of action!
Appealing simplicity in the composition, and the accurate DoF produces a great sense of depth...
Good details in the plume!
