The flight of the albatross royal

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).

In addition, against the day this is not obvious. The main thing is to have seen and share it. Thank you

Hello Francis (the specialist birds, and other critters ) you, you'd be delighted. You smile seeing my albatross, very, very far...
But hey, I don't have the appropriate lens, my daughter was in the midst of not being able to properly 'print', they are so beautiful in flight... As you say : the main thing is to have seen the show.
Thank you for your nice comment.

I don't laugh at all in this photo ; I would be happy to be the author. Even with a 300 +, when the distance is there, we can not have that what the lens is capable of giving us.
