Muriwai: Gannet September 27, 2010 / paul Australasian Gannet (Morus serrator) From my visit to Muriwai last Friday. It was quite windy, and in such conditions it is especially fascinating to watch the gannets fly.

It’s no easy taking birds in flight and absolutely in focus. Well done! Donna Hamilton September 27, 2010 at 11:50 pm YES! top marks for a brilliant photo. These birds are magnificent, and we are very lucky to have them so close to enjoy in Auckland. joan September 28, 2010 at 12:25 am What a beautiful bird, beautifully taken.
