Black-browed Albatross
Photographer: David Johnson Jr
Location: New Island, West Falkland Islands
On the way to Antarctica we stopped in the Falkland Islands and found a breeding ground for these Albatrosses. I happened to be close to this parent and chick and when I saw the mother's beak go near I had an idea that an intimate interaction was going to take place so I snapped the picture.
Digital Alterations: 
Lightroom 4/5 – Sharpened and added contrast, clarity, vibrance, WB and picture was cropped.
Camera Information: Nikon D7100 and 18-300 lens
