A photographer from Scotland, Karen Munro, did not realize that she took the best and most perfectly timed picture until she was looking through her photographs.
She planned on a trip to capture wildlife on a cruise around Stroma Island located on the coast of Scotland, however, the weather was not very ideal. Karen did not have much faith in the pictures that she took. She thought that most pictures will have bad lighting and won’t be as special as they turned out to be, especially the one with the bird. To her surprise, she took the most amazing picture at the most amazing moment.
The bird that she captured is a Fulmar and you can see clearly that the bird is expressing lots of joy. It seems as if the bird is smiling and having an amazing time.
While the bird was flying and shaking himself to dry off from the water, Karen took the picture and it turned out amazing. That’s the real reason why the bird looks filled with happiness.
As they travel, Fulmars usually glide near boats which makes them the ideal bird to take pictures of.
Karen Munro said that “It’s always great to capture something different. Over the last few days, I have had many people commenting on the ‘Happy Bird Photo’ and how it made them smile.”
