Really great pic ! And what a nice bird. Yo're really lucky to have spend your time on beach with him !
Great close-up of the bird. It has a very serious expression, or at least seems that way to my human eye.
Beautiful portrait Ian... How far were you? Here, skua tend to attack you very badly assoon as you're approaching!
Thanks for all the kind comments. Chris, I was sat on the beach and the Skua walked up and sat right by me. The image is not cropped and exif says I was at 173mm - so pretty close! I did get bombed by Skua in one place, as I walked close to some nests I'd not spotted - but this one was very relaxed.
Glad the Skua participated for your photo. It is very serene looking. Rosey
Excellent head shot Ian!Anna :)
Thanks to everyone who takes the time to comment on my blog!
