"Saturated Gannet Babies"
Carla and I headed over to Cape St. Mary's Ecological Gannet Sanctuary while we were in Colinet Newfoundland on May long weekend. My shots wouldn't really do St. Mary's justice but this one was fun because without over-saturating the image the babies were hard to see and blended in with their natural background, the wonders of nature and survival. I can't imagine who might prey on them on these cliffs though, maybe a rogue Gull or another wacky Gannet.
The adults are white with yellowish heads and the babies are the ones with the mottled saturated blue appearance. Kind of cool I thought.
