Look out, landing!
Pigeon Guillemots come in for landing on an early morning at Fort Worden, Puget Sound, Washington. I always get a chuckle when I see them landing on the water. Their wings are small compared to how heavy they are, and they have to fly fast to stay airborn. They put on the brakes to slow down to land, and always end it with a big belly flop.
