North Sea Gannet [Juveniles]
Gannet [juvs], Bempton, Yorkshire, England.
Canon 10D + 300 2.8 + x2 extender.
In summer, when it is quieter along the clifftop footpath, Gannets tend to land near the clifftop, allowing for easier photography.
While adults collect grasses for their nests, juveniles rest and observe the goings on.
These juveniles will be 5 years old before attaining the pure white of adulthood.
