    From last Saturday's whale watch, a gannet just before hitting the water. At this speed, this bird will dive about 24" or more into the water. While the day was better than it could have been, sunny skies would have been better!

    What incredible timing, getting him that close to the water!

    While I'd like to take credit for it, it was more luck. By the time I had acquired focus and tripped the shutter, this is where it was.
