Description:

Sometimes all you get is a fleeting or distant glimpse, never near enough for the camera - see http://www.ispotnature.org/node/318001.
But today a show-off session, close inshore. Some unusual (testing) poses.
You may wonder about the first picture - if it was the only one, I believe there would be a similar number of agreements. It illustrates Focus Grab - small digitals are good at that!
Immer goose is the Orkney name though rarely used, more often a Loon. Haunting distant call.
