Antarctic Petrel

By RodStrachan  
One day I noticed this amazing blue iceberg floating past and tried to frame an Antarctic Petrel against it. Eventually I managed to get this petrel winging by. This image is a crop as my 80-400 lens just didn't have enough reach due to the distance the iceberg was from shore.

Absolutely stunning. This would work well in competition where it will be seen properly.
