I don't think I would take a trip on a trawler even for pictures like this!
 
Good close-up, I dont have to go on a trawler to get a pic of these, I have them in my garden, unfortunately.
 
Cracking shot, such great detail. The beak appears cracked and damaged, never noticed that before. Love the eye detail.
 
Thanks everyone for the kind comments. This shot isn't even cropped - he was so close and so completely unbothered by me!
