Wandering albatross in flight, over the open sea.  The wandering albatross has the largest wingspan of any living bird, with the wingspan between, up to 12' from wingtip to wingtip.  It can soar on the open ocean for hours at a time, riding the updrafts from individual swells, with a glide ratio of 22 units of distance for every unit of drop.  The wandering albatross can live up to 23 years.  They hunt at night on the open ocean for cephalopods, small fish, and crustaceans. The survival of the species is at risk due to mortality from long-line fishing gear, Diomedea exulans Sunset clouds create a colorful arch, spanning the heavens from horizon to horizon, over the open sea between the Falkland Islands and South Georgia Island Prion in flight, Pachyptila, Scotia Sea Adelie penguin, adult feeding chick by regurgitating partially digested food into the chick's mouth.  The pink food bolus, probably consisting of krill and marine invertebrates, can be seen being between the adult and chick's beaks, Pygoscelis adeliae, Shingle Cove, Coronation Island, South Orkney Islands, Southern Ocean Pack ice, a combination of sea ice and pieces of icebergs, Weddell Sea Southern elephant seal, juvenile. The southern elephant seal is the largest pinniped, and the largest member of order Carnivora, ever to have existed. It gets its name from the large proboscis (nose) it has when it has grown to adulthood, Mirounga leonina, Shingle Cove, Coronation Island, South Orkney Islands, Southern Ocean Clouds, weather and light mix in neverending forms over the open ocean of Scotia Sea, in the Southern Ocean Clouds, weather and light mix in neverending forms over the open ocean of Scotia Sea, in the Southern Ocean Iceberg, ocean, light and clouds.

Blue icebergs are blue because the ice from which they are formed has been compressed under such enormous pressure that all gas (bubbles) have been squeezed out, leaving only solid water that takes on a deep blue color, Scotia Sea A blue iceberg.
