Author 'Gélinotte' (Id 205950 ) : This photo has nothing extraordinary, I agree (not sky blue) However, I share it with you, because I had the chance to attend the end of the day to a beautiful sight : the majestic flight of the albatross royal ! The return from their day at sea. This bird endemic to NZ is the largest sea bird, its wingspan reaches regularly 3m50 he did not bat never of the wings, except to the flight ; on the ground, on the sites of reproduction, it is in need of open area and especially in the slopes to be able to fly. An observatory was built at the tip of the peninsula of Otago, Taiaroa Head, we can go there by any small group in order to observe the small albatrosses buried in their nest on the ground, they leave the nest when they were 9 months. They live about 45 years. A single egg is laid every 2 years. Only about one hundred individuals is identified in this location. Another colony of about 15000 couples lives on Campbell island (south of NZ).
