15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Northern Gannet Preening Close-up

I wanted to capture a close-up of the blue ring around the eye of the gannet, but liked the contrast between the blue and the yellow of the neck plumage as well as its texture. I like this photo because it fills the frame and the eye is off-center.
