Northern giant petrel

Continuing my recent pelagic theme, here is a Northern giant petrel photographed at Kaikoura, New Zealand. I don't know that any other tubenose can manage to look so fearsome! Giant petrels will always be high on my wishlist when I visit the Southern oceans. #Northerngiantpetrel #giantpetrel #Macronecteshalli #Macronectes #NewZealand #Kaikoura #pelagic #birding #birdwatching #southernocean #beastmode
