A pair of Cape Gannets (Morus capensis) in their take off run to get airborne on the ocean near the coastline in the Wild Coast region of South Africa near Port St Johns.
These marine birds are native only to Africa, and are easily identified by their large size and black and white plumage which is noticeably silky, giving them a graceful appearance. The distinctive golden crown and nape which gradually become white on the neck are also distinctive, as well as the awkward take off motion from the water where they literally run across the water to get airborne.
