Linda Swanson was on board Shearwater Journeys' Farallon Islands trip, August 7, 2011. Here's what she had to say about the trip: Thank you for your Farallon Trip yesterday, a place I have always wanted to go and see and it was magnificent.
A LAYSAN ALBATROSS flew in, making several passes at the boat. Everyone on board had excellent views. Linda Swanson on shot these two images, below.
This Laysan Albatross is most likely from the breeding colony off Mexico.Both images, copyright, Linda Swanson. Please do not use without permission. A full trip report will be posted tomorrow.
