Flying Gannet
Lens: FA 77mm Camera: K5 II Photo Location: Auckland NZ Muriwai ISO: 2500 Shutter Speed: 1/1000s Aperture: F5.6 
Posted By: snarby97, 01-19-2017, 08:51 PM

There wasn't much light left and I had my trusted 77mm lens on my camera when this flying Gannet came nearby. I would recommend this place for all to visit if you are near Auckland.
I saw someone with what looked like a 600mm lens all camouflaged on a cannon body on a Tripod - would have been great for long range shots but would have been hard to manoeuvre.
Hope you like this quick snap
