Behind the Scenes of this Photo


Taken on Gareloi Island in the Aleutian Islands, Alaska, on June 17th, 2009.

Just by looking at a Least Auklet you might imagine that this bird, a few inches high and somewhere around 1.5 ounces, is a frail thing. And yet they are capable of hundreds of miles of flight and consume 80% of their body weight a day. They may be Leasts, but they’re also beasts.
