contented nesting albatross - Galapagos Islands

Hiking on a ridge on the Galapagos Islands, our Naturalist brought us to a rookery to view several species of birds native to the islands. We came upon a group of nesting albatross and other birds. This bird looked so happy and contented, I had to get a portrait.
