Photographer's Note

The gannets colonies of Cape Kidnappers in Hawkes Bay are a nature photographers paradise. I have been there many times & each time take many more photos than I had originally intended. Each time is different - the time of year, when they have their young etc. This photo was taken just before the first chicks hatch, usually early late November/early December & the Plateau Colony is at its most populated with adults birds. Hope you all enjoy this photo - have shared others of this colony in my gallery.
