At­lantic gan­net, Morus bas­sanus Isle of Noss, Shet­land Is­lands

If the eyes are the win­dows to the soul, what do these eyes tell you? Look­ing for a dif­fer­ent per­spec­tive for a gan­net por­trait, I po­si­tioned my­self on top of the cliffs on the Isle of Noss. Look­ing straight down I had an in­ti­mate view of a group of gan­nets sit­ting on a higher ledge. I talked to them and one gan­net looked up, re­veal­ing its rounded head, sym­me­try and beau­ti­ful blue eyes against its white feath­ers.
