This shot was taken at Cape St. Mary's ecological reserve in Newfoundland. About half day round trip from St. John's. Actually, you do not need redbull to take this shot ;-). There is a rock cliff about 50-100 metres away from the huge rock serving as a nesting site for thousands of gannets. Amazing place to practice shooting (photographically of course) fast and close flying birds.

Wow, how you managed to get ABOVE the bird over what looks to be ocean, is beyond me! +1 for difficulty of shot.

Red bull gives you wings. You'd need them for this shot.
