[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This photgraph is taken at Cape Kidnappers. The top light shinning through the primaries on the wing showing the shape of the muscles etc. This colony offers many good oppoetunities for phtographs and can be got to there by the Gannet Safarie's four wheel drive buses. If anyone is in Hawke's Bay during the summer months I really recommend the trip to the Cape.

Hi Richard
very nice fly a bird
well done.

Good close shot of this gannet in flight. The detail is good, the image nicely focused and your composition is strong. Interesting notes about the light through the primaries showing the shape of the muscles.
