Many years ago when Judith and I were doing a trip to the South Island we took the Picton Ferry to cross Cook Strait. Not far out to sea from the heads of Wellington Harbour, this magnificent black-backed gull parked itself in the air only a couple of metres out from and slightly above the main deck railing where Judith and I were taking in the view.
Fortunately I had my camera with me and was able to capture this wonderful image which I find so reminiscent of Star Trek's famous Starship Enterprise.
