Fish Moustache

By geoffrey baker
Another one from Skomer Island last Friday, I've still got lots of flight shots to upload but here's one on the ground for a change.

This is full frame, as taken so no pixels were harmed in the making of this photo ;o)
I zoomed back a little for the next shot in the sequence but I prefer the pose in this one even if it is a bit tight in the frame.

The lovely background is a cliff face at "The Wick" on the South East of the island, by far the best place on Skomer to get close to these beautiful birds.

great clarity and composition, although my own preference may have been to use -1/3 EC but that's 'personal'
