[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This razorbill was shot on Stora karlso in Sweden, just before it landed on the cliffs. Graceful? hardly, even taking off the just drop of the cliffs an with a few wing beats, maybe they make it before the water. The young are actually coaxed to let themselves drop off the cliffs by ther parents, once deemed ready,

enjoy your weekend

Hello Jeroen,
So you have also been to Stora Karlsö too!
A great action shot of a landing Razorbill, taken from a great POV with excellent sharpness and lighting against a blue sky.
Thanks and best regards,

Interesting gear!

great capture, TFS Ori

Hi mate J.:)

What a great and funny moment you captured with this lovely bird from an impreesive POV. I've never seen this species in the wild, but would certainly enjoy it if I did. A good, sharp capture and I like the way the sunlight is striking its nose, legs and wings.
TFS and have a great Sunday!

Hello Jeroen,
What a great and very well-timed capture of a beautiful Razorbill, a bird I've never seen! Great focus and beautiful light and colours. The sky is not that blue here any more - quite a relief after two very hot weeks!
TFS and cheers, Ulla
