Great picture of this albatross in flight. What a huge bird. Very sharp action shot. Good showing of the wings' position. Good light and details on the head. TFS, Alptekin.

Quite a funny action shot. He looks as though he's going to drop like a stone. Well composed and exposed. Nice yellow of the beak.
