Waved Albatross
Photographer: Marian Herz
Location: Espanola, Galapagos Islands
Story: 
It was the last day of the first week of the trip. The group hiked across the island to hopefully see waved albatross. We stopped for a while on the top of a cliff overlooking the ocean. I noticed this young albatross running toward the edge of the cliff and then running back. The guide said it was almost ready for its first flight. We waited but it never did take off while we were there.
