PIC OF THE WEEK: 06/22/15 • PREVIOUS WEEKALL 2015 PICSNEXT WEEK

Where: Oahu, HI• Ka'ena Point State Park
Notes: Ka'ena is designated as a Natural Area Reserve and is the westernmost tip of the island of Oahu. The reserve sustains an ecosystem that is home to many native Hawaiian plants and animals including Wedge-tailed Shearwater, Monk Seals and an Albatross colony. At the entrance to the point is a predator guard fence that keeps Mongoose and Black Rats from invading the nests of the native birds. The point is geologically formed where the Waianae Mountains trickle down into the Pacific Ocean. The three mile hike to the point is rugged, but always worth the effort. Kaʻena means “the heat” and the climate lives up to that name most days by late morning. The Albatross occasionally fly into and out of the nesting area and sometimes glide close-by. I believe this is out of curiosity. Having seen this behavior before, I was ready when this bird buzzed over us at only about ten feet away. I was pleasantly surprised to find this full frame, tack sharp image taken when this bird was so close and moving so fast. The late morning light bought a twinkle in its eye, despite its heavy eye brow.
