A fulmar glides over the calm sea in an East Greenland fjord.
The image of the Fulmar is taken from a ship. We are in Tyrolerfjorden in East Greenland. I am on board a scientific survey ship and we have sailed all the way from Tromso in northern Norway.
It takes thre days to sail from Norway to Greenland, and all the way fulmars have followed us. It's fascinating birds. Apparently the do not use much energy to follow us, it is rare to see them use the wings. Often they fly quite close to the water surface, following the waves up and down, it looks like they are having fun.
