A Visit to the Gannets at Cape Kidnappers

"Who do you think YOU are?"

Mile High club ??

These birds have a wingspan up to 2 metres

Most of the males were bringing in seaweed from the ocean to build nests

Off for another load

"Ain't I pretty!!"

Take off into the wind

Most of the nests were blown away in a recent storm, so all starting from scratch again


"Discussing" nesting space

Ritual dance

Quite beautiful, and unconcerned by the onlookers


"Thanks, sweetie"

"I love you, too"

Even with a load - graceful

Speed fiend
