Amber Hannah a Specialist Technologist at the Hercus Taieri Resource Unit took this image while fishing for kahawai just off Taiaroa Head.
The Southern royal albatross and white-capped albatross visited Amber and her family.
“The Southern royal was very curious and bold, coming within one metre of our boat while the white-capped albatross lurked further back.”
Capturing moments like this is what Amber loves about photography and it motivates her to get out amongst nature, she says.
“I am very much an amateur photographer and admit to only using my camera on auto! Fortunately I manage to get the occasional lucky shot like this one and this keeps me clicking.”
