I photographed this black-browed albatross mother and chick in the Falkland Islands. There were dozens of nests on a slope leading down to the sea, and the amount of avian activity was amazing. With birds that are perched or on nests, I use a fast shutter speed because their movements -- even the turning of their head -- occurs so quickly that it's easy to end up with a blurred image. Telephoto lenses magnify movement, hence the need for a fast shutter. I used a 500mm lens for this shot, and my settings were 1/1250, f/8, and 400 ISO. I waited until the mother's beak was behind the beak of the chick, then I took the picture. Had the mother's beak been in front, she would have largely blocked the view of the baby.
