Caption: Black-browed albatross (Thalassarche melanophrys) breeding pair courting. This large seabird mates for life. The courtship ritual involves crossing bills, preening, and moving their heads to and fro. The black-browed albatross is found in the southern oceans, where it feeds on marine crustaceans called krill. It breeds on Antarctic and sub-Antarctic islands. Photographed on Saunders Island, the Falkland Islands.
