To take that gannett wasn't actually as hard as you might think. Millions of them were flying very close all around the rock I was perched on.
My camera was set on shutter speed priority (1/750s). The framing is not that great because the gannett was flying really fast not even 3 meters away from me.

Wow! You've captured the bird in a perfect aerodynamic position! Perfect composition, perfect colors, and I like the touch of blurriness around the wings - gives the feeling of movement. Very well done Nicolas!

This is a beautifull bird shot. The face of the bird is lovely. I'm impressed. I have tried to take pictures of bird flying but most of them turn out to be a piture of blue sky.

Amazing! This capture is very beautiful, and so is the bird. However, it's a little blurry... Good mix of natural colours and a blue sky. Well done!
I have made a simple WS for you!
