Looong Runway

Having successfully caught and consumed a large fish, this northern gannet is above the weight at which he is licensed to fly. His frantic take-off run exceeded 150 meters. With a wingspan of more than 2 meters, this beautiful and efficient fisherman will live at sea, coming to land with his mate for nesting.
