Photo: Adult Gannet Picture Muriwai Beach Sunset

A solitary adult Australasian Gannet perches on a rock cliff overlooking the rest of the colony at Muriwai Beach near Auckland on the North Island of New Zealand during the sunset hours.

An adult Australasian Gannet who appears to watching over his colony, stands on a high rock cliff at Muriwai Beach on the North Island of New Zealand as the sunset lighting starts to diminish. With one eye on his fellow mates, the other eye keeps a close watch on us and the camera, but the gannet remains still while we capture his picture.

Hundreds of gannets nest below which look like a mass of white spots, this soon multiplying when all the chicks have hatched. Visitors to Muriwai Beach are amazed when they see the Gannet Colony on the rocks, soaring above the cliffs and the close encounters where the beautiful markings are very prominent.
