Below: A molting Wilson's Storm-Petrel that made several close passes around the Judith M. Jim Stasz complained when I leaped up from a Bonine-induced stupor to snap this shot and then sat back down and closed my eyes. Some primal part of my brain takes over when seabirds need to be photographed. I spend as much time fighting against seasickness medicine as fighting seasickness.
