Image was captured from a blind in mid-June 2013 on Machias Seal Island in the Gulf of Maine. The hatch, and hence the “classic” feeding pictures, were a couple of weeks late in 2013, so I concentrated instead on a different kind of portrait.

Shot with a Canon 7D and 100-400 zoom lens @ 275mm. ISO 400, f/7.1 and a shutter at 1/2000. And then I cropped in tight to eliminate distractions.

    Very cool shot.
