Gnashing Gannets

"Gannets are beautiful predatory sea birds," says Joel Woods, who took this photo about 100 miles east of Cape Cod. "Though they are very adept at hunting, they are not above snatching a fish that has fallen from our net." This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our photo community on Instagram.
