A young gannet waiting for its mother to arrive back with food. Captured a month before Covid changed our lives in New Zealand at Cape Kidnappers…a huge colony of around 6500 pairs. It is the largest and most accessible mainland colony in the World.

He looks a bit perturbed, mom had better hurry. I love the detail in this shot, the expression and the DOF... great feel.
