Diving Gannets

I didn’t quite get the picture I wanted of a gannet with its beak just breaking the water as it dived for a fish, but I got close.

In this one three gannets all dived close together entering the sea like a poorly synchronised diving team.

And in this picture one gannet emerges with its prize as another heads down for a fish.

    Great pictures! Every year I go to the bird sanctuary to watch the gannets in their nesting place, but because of the geology of the island it is almost impossible for me to see the birds dive. Thank you for sharing your photography.
