Gannets

When Wendy and I were out walking we saw lots of Gannets.  They fly very quickly and dive after fish without notice and they are rarely very close to land so they are hard to photograph.  I did manage a few though:

  1. I think if I can come back as something, I will choose to be a bird! Have I been good enough to be entitled to a 'higher' life, do you think?

    Love those photos.

    Strange you post about the gannets and I have planned to post them tomorrow.

    Are there gannets in UK too? Where do they fly to?

  3. Had to look these up in Wikipedia... Never heard the name before. From English Wiki to the Swedish article, and then I recognized the name; but I probably never saw one.

    So again I learned something... ;)

  4. They look like beautiful birds. I can tell it was a windy day, but that water looks so very refreshing! I can't wait to get back to the ocean in our travels!

  5. Hmmm. You know, in all the time I lived in Havelock North, I never once went to Kidnappers? Time to correct that soon, I think.
