Gannet Couple

Bonaventure Island (off the coast of Quebec, Canada) is home to one of the largest Northern Gannet colonies in the world. I wanted to capture these beautiful birds with an image that conveys a sense of the love and affection they show each other while they are hatching their eggs and rearing young.
