This image shows a pair of Gannets in their mating dance.
After conducting this elaborate ritual the birds mated for a few seconds a shot which will get an airing at some point.
Thanks for looking,

PS - Thanks to Jenni for the user award yesterday, it's much appreciated Smile

Not quite sure why this didn't get the bigger award, just my opinion but it looks aesthically a better shot then the one with the EC ?
