13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
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.
