The black-browed albatross or Mollymauk (Thalassarche melanophris) from the albatross family (Diomedeidae) spends almost its entire life in the air over the Southern Ocean. We were able to photograph these wonderful birds in Saunders, one of the Falkland Islands, where a large colony of this species is situated.
