Photographer's Note

Cory's Shearwater (Calonectris diomedea), in Greek known as "artemis" or "artina", is a species breeding on the cliffs and islands of the Mediterranean Sea and migrating to the Atlantic in late summer/autumn. It is a gregarious species, feeding on fish and molluscs and can dive down to 15m in search of its prey. It is a bird that can easily be observed following ships and often follows fishing vessels looking for fish and offal.
This specific one was flying a bit separately from the others when I took this photo.
