Caption

Black-browed albatross (Thalassarche melanophrys) breeding pair preening during 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 at West Point Island, the Falkland Islands.
