The Love of Gannets by NicoFroehberg The Love of Gannets by NicoFroehberg
Nobody knows if birds have emotions like this, but Northern Gannets (Morus bassanus) form couples, that often last for many years and this is their greeting ritual...
I took this picture on my trip to Helgoland in may and for me it´s one of if not the best photo I´ve ever taken! :)

If you like it, maybe purchase a full-res (24MP) download or just take a look at my other pictures... ;)
