Northern royal albatross, Taiaroa Head

A wide-angle shot of a northern royal albatross at the nest at Taiaroa Head, Otago Peninsula. This is the only mainland albatross colony in the world. Dunedin's port, Port Chalmers, can be seen in the background. Thanks to head ranger Lyndon Perriman and the Royal Albatross Centre at Taiaroa Head for enabling me to take this shot.
