2011 – January, an Albatross

It’s off to the speedway this morning…….
Maybe some cool pictures of that this afternoon, generic but as a teaser, usa here’s an Albatross from Kaikoura in New Zealand.
This was part of our road trip with Kea, Sao and I heading from Northland, New Zealand to Bluff and back…..
What a trip!!

These blokes look soooo serious!
Albatross, Kaikoura

The Dance – Petrels

These large birds spend a lot of their time arguing and fighting. Competition for food is fierce.
Size rules and they try to make themselves look as large as possible.

All in the name of survival

Albatross flavour!

Here’s a close up of an Albatross sitting in the water off the coast of Kaikoura.
Amazing stories these birds must have (If they had not a pea brain) given the journeys they have taken.

This was a day to remember on the road trip and we all were left in wonder.

I have a few more of these over the coming days…

I trust you won’t become bored.

Perth has fireworks tonight!!!! I can foresee some images for tomorrow!!
Albatross flavour!

NZ Weka

Flightless Bird, very cheeky and curious.
Introduced species are a plight on these natives.
