Waved Albatross, Phoebastria irrorata. Like all Albatross, the Waved Albatross spends the majority of its life at sea, traveling the oceans of the world before returning to its breeding grounds on the island of Española in the Galápagos. Gliding on the tiniest wind without flapping their wings, albatross were considered to be a ship’s good luck by sailors, and to kill one was considered exceedingly hapless.Galápagos Islands, Ecuador©Two Loons/Erin Lehnert
