When you are on board on a cruise ship you feel sometimes a little bit boring. So gannets are the best to shoo it away.

not quite a seagull, but a gannet

hihi, kann ich mir gut vorstellen, ich wäre wahrscheinlich auch ständig an deck um ausschau nach tieren zu halten.
klasse flugaufnahme, gut eingefroren mit den 1/1600, und perfekt das weiße gefieder im blauen himmel belichtet, nur sieht aber eher aus wie ein Basstölpel. well done & viele grüße, thor.

Hello Achim,
A fine in-flight capture of a Gannet taken from a ship off the coast of Mauritania. The POV is excellent and shows the features with good sharpness against a nice blue sky.
A good way of spending time on board a ship!
Thanks and best regards,

Hi Achim.
You have shared a very delicate and nice in-flight picture. Pose of the bird is sweet. I also like wonderful exposure and reproduction of the bird plumage as well as nice blue sky and attractive sunlight of the bird's back and wings. TFS and best wishes from so busy Ukrainian friend.

Hi Achim,

The point of view is allowing us to admire the gannet in flight. The subject is well framed. The nice blue sky is enhancing the colors of the picture. Well done, have a nice day.
