Mother Gannet Feeding Her Baby
This photo shows a mother gannet feeding its baby. I took the photo at the Muriwai Gannet Colony on the North Island of New Zealand. It is quite a fascinating experience to see the thousands of gannets gathered together, flying in and out of their perch on the rocks overlooking the ocean at Muriwai Beach. We were fortunate to be there at a time when the young "chicks" were being feed by their mothers.
