Albatross Chick beside its nest
Photographer: Betty A Wasicek
Location: West Point Is., Falkland Islands
I was on a photo safari in the Falkland Islands and went to the steep cliffs on the far side of West Point Island where thousands of Albatross and other sea birds had their chicks. It was wonderful to capture the beautiful mother and its chick in such a fabulous setting.
