It’s breeding season at the Muriwai gannet colony, with many chicks already hatched. Most are still small enough to spend most of their time nestled under a parent bird, and are difficult to photograph.

But the adult birds are as magnificent as ever.

Five Minutes of Random (the #RegularRandom challenge) is hosted by Desley Jane at Musings of a Frequently Flying Scientist. 

If you’d like to join in:

  • choose a subject or a scene
  • spend five minutes photographing it – no more!
  • try to see it from many angles, look through something at it, change the light that’s hitting it
  • tag your post #regularrandom and ping back to Desley’s post
  • have fun!
