Seen among the Antarctic ice floes from the deck of our ship. Maybe best on black?

Explored.

Love all the blue-green tones...so cold but the bird brings life to such a harsh environment. Excellent, George :)

Focusing on the bird gives an almost watercolour quality to the background. Very pleasing image!

I would not have thought that the white bird would show up so nicely against that subtle pale green. An expert job of focusing.

Thank you all for your many kind comments and faves for this shot. You have made it one of the most popular in my photo stream. It was always great to see Snow Petrels, usually not found far north of the pack ice. .
