Fairy Nuff's Avatar Just popped in to say hello and no I haven't fallen off the planet as WW suggested.
Been a bit hectic here between going to the Trade Show, getting back,making up the orders (yes we got a few) and tidying up loose ends (which I'm still doing).
However we had a welcome day off on Monday and went to Troupe head to see the birdies...hence my Gannet photo.
I nabbed HO's 300mm lens off him and managed to get some kissing Gannets as well as a lovely selection of flowers growing on the cliffs.
No Puffins as yet but I think we will be back there soon...I hear a picnic callingVery Happy

Dancing Dog's Avatar What a lovely photo. Gannets always reminds me of the Monty Python skit. Albatross, Gannet Ripple, Stormy Petrel on a Stick.

Where on earth did you find a colony of Gannets? The picture is great!

We saw Gannets and Puffins a couple of summers ago when we were in Newfoundland (another former "colony"). Hmmmm . . . a clony within a "colony." Only in Canada, you say?

Ivy's Avatar Saw the first Gannets in my life last August when we took daughter to her new school, I was soooo excited. Don't think we have them here. They were accompanying the boat when we sailed up the Firth

Withy Brook's Avatar I have loved gannets ever since seeing them diving, in my previous existence, sailing off the west coast of Scotland - but I have never seen them kissing.

Fairy Nuff's Avatar Now WW you should know it's not alway size that matters!

Mind you in photography sometimes it isConfused

They were lovely, if a bit smelly, to watch...we'll be back I'm sure.
