THAT BIRDS ENJOY THE FREEDOM OF FLYING, IN MY OPINION, IS A GIVEN. BUT FEW SEEM TO BYE WALKING ON AIR QUITE LIKE THIS FULMAR RECENTLY CAUGHT ON VIDEO.
Recently, while on a wildlife cruise around the island of Stroma, off the Scottish coast, professional photographer Karen Munro had an encounter, quite by accident, with the happiest sea bird on earth!
Karen had no idea she had caught the perfect shot of a bird in bliss until later.
” On arrival house, I was going through my photos, the majority of which weren’t anything unique as the light had actually been pretty poor that day,” Munro said. “However I did have a laugh as quickly as I saw this, as the fulmar looks like he is smiling and having fun.”
It almost seemed as though the bird was in the midst of a state of complete euphoria– or modeling an ad for expensive bird shampoo.
But while the fulmar does indeed seem pretty darn happy, some added context from Munro aids describe the pose she caught. Either way, though, the bird is still spreading good vibes.
“Fulmars will certainly often glide alongside the boat, however this had just lifted off the sea and was shaking itself to dry off whilst flying,” she said. “It’s constantly great to catch something different. Over the last couple of days, I have had many people commenting on the ‘Happy Bird Photo’ and just how it made them smile.
It’s not hard to picture, however, that seeing their carefree counterpart had other, less cheery fulmars feeling …
… simply a little envious.
