[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Gannets are large black and white birds with yellow heads; long, pointed wings; and long bills. Northern gannets are the largest seabirds in the North Atlantic, with a wingspan of up to 2 metres. The other two species occur in the temperate seas around southern Africa, southern Australia and New Zealand.

Gannets hunt fish by diving from a height into the sea and pursuing their prey underwater.

This Gannet is in the process of taking off from a glassy sea at a superb run!
