Gannets nesting on Boreray in St. Kilda, islands of the Outer Hebrides of Scotland. Tens of thousands of Gannets nest here in this remote Atlantic archipelago, a double UNESCO World Heritage site for natural heritage and its cultural history. St. Kilda was abandoned in 1930 when the last full-time residents gave up living in these isolated islands.

Bio: National Geographic photographer Jim Richardson has been a regular contributor to the magazine for 35 years.
