Report: Royal Albatross

In Taiaroa, New Zealand, you can watch Royal Albatross soar overhead from inside a glassed-in observation room. Although this is a far cry from the open-air filming of Albatross I was able to do at sea near South Georgia Island, I was at least stationary rather than shooting from the deck of a rolling and pitching ship. Despite the glass, I think the footage in this video Report turned out pretty well, in particular offering some excellent views of the full 3-meter wing-span of the Royal -- the largest species of Albatross -- and a rare glimpse of one sitting on a nest. Enjoy! (Many thanks to Annastasia Workman for an exquisite new piece of music!)
