New Zealand's Gannets
The trick at Muriwai, with the gannets, is to be able to capture the soaring birds in mid flight and still have the focus square on their eyes. Sometimes just getting the bird in the frame was challenge enough!! I also found that my desperate attempts to engage that perfect flying shot - meant I missed some great action on the rocks. It was good to have family around to point out the interesting going-ons amongst the bird's active community.
