Photo: Australasian Gannet Flying Muriwai Beach New Zealand

The beautiful wingspan of an Australasian Gannet while flying over the rocky shores of Muriwai Beach on the North Island of New Zealand.

As an Australasian Gannet soars above the rock cliffs at Muriwai Beach near Auckland on the North Island, of New Zealand, we were able to capture a beautiful picture of his underside markings and wingspan. The dark hues along the edges of the wings on an Australasian Gannet are a brownish-black shade which span out to the tips of its wings.

The length of an Australian Gannet when fully grown reaches about 90 centimeters but its wingspan doubles its length being about 180 centimeters wide. As this gannet is flying overhead, it allows us to see how massive its wingspan is as it prepares itself for a spectacular dive into the water.
