Layson Albatross hatching

Went to one of my favorite places today, Ka'ena Point.  It is the western point of Oahu and is also a bird sanctuary.  Layson Albatross and Shearwaters come here to nest.  I love going during their nesting time to watch.  I encountered this Albatross very close to the path as I walked in.

About an hour later, when I was leaving, I got a little surprise (same spot):

A lot of people think they are ugly when they are little, but I think they are so adorable.  And look what beautiful creatures they grow into!
