CommentI was visiting Portland, Victoria and able to visit the Australasian Gannets' very noisy colony. The birds were nestled on a large rock and intermingling in the morning light. One gannet sitting serenely was snapped but it wasn't until arriving home I noticed the throat streak which was black and extremely long. It was a Cape Gannet, accidental to Australia.
EquipmentNikon Coolpix P900 with Nikkor 83x wide optical zoom ED VR lens 4.3-357mm 1:2.8-6.5
No tripod used on this occasion.
LocationLawrence Rock Portland (Victoria)
