Fulmar Prion

Bounty Islands
D850, 400mm, 1/3200, f/9, ISO800

Prions are a family of medium-sized sea birds that all have the distinctive black "M" marking across the wings and back.  They nest in large numbers on the Bounty Islands, where we had some decent photo opportunities with the multitudes of birds coming and going.  Most of the time they stay fairly far away from the ship and are hard to get decent images.  The land in the background is one of the islands.

My wife says it looks like a Longhorn when turned with the tail to the bottom!

Beautiful shot showing off that lovely chevron on the wings. Nice head turn too. How wonderful to have traveled to see this. :)
