Male red throaated diver taking off

By Daxiesmum
Taken on my recent trip to Iceland. This is the male of a pair, with two chicks. He was going fishing about 11 pm! It hardly gets dark that far north.

Thing was I was watching this bird as he strated his take off run but he was coming straight down the barrel of my 500 lens. Awesome!!
