I appreciate that this is not the perfect image!

However, it was taken from a very rocky boat (at Portree on Skye) on a very dull day!

Either way, such an amazing bird to see in the wild!

Thanks for looking, and for all your comments, votes and awards on the previous image - much appreciated! John Grin

Wow! You must be really thrilled to have even seen one of these in the wild John. Well done to get this image. I wouldn't want to be any kind of prey with this bearing down on me.
Technically, you can't compare this sort of shot with one of a bird sitting on a branch where you had your camera on a tripod and ten minutes to check your focus.
Pleased to give my first ever User Award to this. Well done mate.
Chris

I'm really jealous of this. We didn't find out about these boats until after we had left the islands. Sad

It's a great capture John. A serious set of feet. Grin

A tremendous opportunistic capture, you've timed this one to perfection. The quality is exceptional given the difficult conditions you faced

This is enormously difficult exposure-wise. I had a few from this angle, but they were all pretty well silhouetted.
