A highlight of our vacation to Newfoundland was visiting Cape St. Mary's Ecological Reserve, which is the home of over 11,000 pairs of nesting Northern Gannets as well as other species. This is one of the most spectacular scenes I've laid my eyes (and lens) upon. Bird Rock is a 100m tall stack of sandstone that is separated from the viewing area by as little as 10 meters. From where I was standing, you could observe their natural courtship, nesting, and feeding behaviours, and interactions with one another.
