superb shot! The elegance of the beautiful flying bird is captured so well! The light as if touches softly its wings and head, brings out the whiteness and the beautiful colour over there on the head. Lovely work.
Best regards, abhijit.

A nice action shot of this gannet in flight.
A very sharp capture with an adequate shutter speed to freeze the action.
Great details on the bird with excellent exposure.
Very neatly presented against a nice blurred seascape.

Hey Hansie - I saw this fellow again on Friday... He said to say Kia ora to you...
Great shot of this beauty - they are so amazing to see and not always easy to capture in flight. Brilliant catch - very well displayed for us

Je hebt h'm inderdaad goed bevrozen Hans
1/2000 daar blijft de tijd wel even bij stilstaan :-)
Goed detail, zelfs nog in z'n zwarte pennen ( al moet je echt kijken - doe ik dus ook )
Geen " but " - kwestie van smaak - maar ik had die cirkeltjes ( lens flare ? of wat ) verwijderd.
( Ja zelfs ik ! hihi )

This is possibly the best "in flight" bird shot I have seen Hansie! BEAUTIFUL! Nice soft BG, to make the sharp bird stand out! Excellent levels! Love the colors! It's all good!

Great shot Hans, I've tried to photograph these in flight with little success, easier photographing warbirds I think.
The fast shutter speed does hower seem to help alot. Will make a note of that.
