Of all the bird photos that I have taken, this is one of my favourites. It's a photo that I made in the late 80's while visiting some islands in the Subantarctic. Shortly after taking this picture I was in a rubber boat, that with the force of the waves and the wind was tipped over. I managed to salvage the film, and with great luck, it was still, having been protected by the enclosing cassette, in good condition. The camera was finished.
