View of gannet colony at Muriwai from the overlook. This was at the end of November, some of the parents were sitting on top of their chicks, the nests are hollowed into the top of the rock. There were a few crash landings into the colony and some continued attempts at mating. Great viewpoint to watch all of the action. I like this photo for the composition and the few gannets flying against the dark rock.
Wish I had the nice equipment to get closeups that were in focus...
I love all the ones that show the eyes and feathers in detail.

Kia ora Meryl, and welcome to TN. You show the gannets well, as I know how far away they are, and I think you've done a good job. Thank you for sharing,

nice colony, TFS Ori
