A Great skua (Stercorarius skua) from Runde, Norway. This image made it into the gallery because together with the following one it shows the difference that lighting makes quite nicely, while still having an angle and background relevance. The sea is far away but still recognisably sea, and the bird is level with the lens. EOS 7DII with EF 500mm at 1/800 f4, ISO500
