Black-footed Albatross

I saw this Black-footed Albatross in the coastal waters of San Diego County, California. The expedition boat I was on did trail a fish oil slick to attract birds, and it certainly seemed to work on this albatross. It got quite close to the boat and circled for about a half hour, landing and taking off several times.
