31st March: Drake Passage

A little bit quieter today.  There were always albatrosses and other birds following the ship, waiting for fish that may get thrown up in the wake.  I spent some time photographing them, an interesting exercise in itself, out on the rolling deck with a very heavy long telephoto mounted on a monopod from the belt.

    Great shot under those conditions. We made it to Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon, nearly as many animals here (:))

    Fascinating, however a rolling deck is not exciting envy at this point.
