Seen out to sea, drawn in the rain.

These feeding gannets were viewed  out to sea and drawn with me standing, steadying the telescope against  the wind.

Just out to sea – many gannets suddenly congregate.  They turn, wings outstretched then slip into a dive, wings held behind tail, neck outstretched. They can be seen as a trace of bubbles below water before they surface.  Wings beating they stretch up their body and necks to swallow.  Then  they take off into the wind to repeat this or fly off, sated.

    • Thanks.
      It’s nice if you to say so. It always encourages me to post. To me, these are very scrappy drawings and I post because it’s what I’ve got. But I’ve learned to value others’ judgement also, including compliments. So much appreciated.
