Weekly Travel Theme: Romance 02-16-2014

Romance, waved albatross style. Waved albatross mate for life, but after months at sea the bond between the pair must be reestablished. They have developed an elaborate ritual that includes a swaggering gate, mooing, bill-circling and bill-clappering, sky pointing and gaping. The following is a series of photos of a pair of waved albatross I was lucky enough to see and photo in the Galapagos Islands.
