Roy Mangersnes - Diving with Guillemots

I love sitting in a Zodiak at my favorite bird cliff around midnight. The Brünnicks Guillemots are getting used to my presence and curiously approach the small boat. Eventually it is like I am part of the flock, but as soon as they dive into the freezing ocean I am left alone again... except the other 100.000 birds calling out from the cliff and the air around me.

Location: Spitsbergen, Svalbard, Norway
