Taking Off

In a moment this bird will be gliding from the height of the nesting platform – Australasian Gannets (morus serrator) have a breeding colony at Muriwai. For the next 8 months or so, they will be here, before flying off again to Australia. Clumsy as they are on land, they are elegant fliers and amazing divers.

  1. Their colouring is very beautiful, the way is graduates into the white. I’m always impressed with people who can capture good bird photographs.

  2. Every time I photograph birds, they always come out blurry. This is a beautifully clear shot. The wings are perfect.
