Close-up of three gannet birds - one of a series
Thousands of gannets nest on the clifftops at Cape Kidnappers, Hawke's Bay, New Zealand. Mated pairs preen and perform a ritual dance of recognition; growing fledglings exercise their wings.
Adults are mostly white, with pale yellow head; the chicks and juveniles are mostly brown with white spotting. Australasian gannet, (Morus serrator) related to boobies.

Dingoes are Australia's wild dog. They arrived in Australia about brought to Australian shores about 5, 000 years ago by Indonesian Seafarers. Dingoes do not bark, but howl like wolves. They live in a variety of habitats and usually remain in one area, though they can cover large distances across their territory.
