Great Northern Diver - Another One

It seems that CJ and I are constantly in search of that perfect shot - completely unattainable, of course - of any bird that we see: especially uncommon ones.  So far as we are concerned Divers are not common.  So far this last few weeks we've seen Great Northern Divers in (relative) profusion and also a Red-throated Diver (and possibly a Black-throated one too).  They tend to be quite a long way off shore though so a good shot has been difficult.  When we were driving along The Braighe (between Eagleton and Stornoway) yesterday I saw a Great Northern Diver just out of the water on the edge having a little siesta.  A hurried stop of the car (if one can do that) and a quick walk back and we managed a few shots before it sailed off into the distance.

  1. It's wonderful........why is it that there are so many shots of birds bums. This is one of the best of the genre.

  2. They are beautiful photos, love the first shot. Nothing wrong with bird bums, I reckon.
