Another pair of Gannets at Bempton

Remember when the sun shone a few weeks ago?



Thanks for looking.

I love their almost comical expressions.

They don't look real - almost like ventriloquist's dummies! I like the blue on blue effect of their features against the sky.

Here's a PPC showing the blue blue sea just up the coast at Filey, taken the previous day. It was the weekend before the Jubilee weekend - the one that would normally be a Bank Holiday, but by Royal prerogative, wasn't - hence the glorious weather

Another excellent shot of these 'designer' seabirds. I like the OOF pink flowers in the foreground. Nice one Bilbo.
