Thursday, March 12, 2015 Black-legged Kittiwake water print

Seward, Alaska

This afternoon, I practiced photographing erratic BLACK-LEGGED KITTIWAKES in the harbor as they plunged into and under the water, grabbing herring. 

I chanced to get an exciting once-in-a-lifetime shot, a water print of the kittiwake. As the bird dove headlong, the water splashed up in the almost perfect shape of its tail and outstretched wings. It looks like an ice sculpture!

Happy Birding!
