The Northern Gannet is one of the largest seabirds in Canada. The majestic bird has an impressive 1.80m wingspan.
The Gannet seabird breeds are mainly in Scotland and Quebec, Canada. In the Gaspé Peninsula, there are more than 60,000 breeding pairs each year on Bonaventure Island.
The close-up photograph of Northern Gannets in their nesting ground was shot during a visit to the Northern Gannet colony of Bonaventure Island in Gaspésie. Visiting this island is a unique experience. Bonaventure Island is close to the Quebec mainland and easily accessible with a short boat ride.
I love the gesture of this bird wildlife photograph. Two of the birds are looking straight at the camera, while the other has something to say about the intrusion of the 3rd bird onto the nest. These photographs are taken well off the nesting ground in park designated areas with a large 600mm lens to bring the up-close and personal perspective to life. The eyes are in perfect focus in this action scene.
