15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
A Gannet with Attitude

In spite of it being a large, single-species colony, each gannet has its own personality. This bird developed a bit of an attitude when cameras were pointed in its direction, and occasionally I thought it might actually cross the barrier separating observers from the birds to let us know exactly what it thought of us.
