Things are slowing down a little bit and it's gettin a little more routine. Today I sprayed a lot of verbesina. I've got a picture of the piles of nets for you that we've taken from Eastern Island.
Did anyone watch the Animal Planet show??? I'd like to hear how it was since we don't get that channel. We're wondering here if the plane will show up tomorrow to take all the people off that couldn't leave on Friday. There are 4 volunteers who are late getting back for their jobs so are kind of anxious to get back (but also kind of not). The videos that we watched last night were very interesting. Ziggy shot a lot of cool underwater animals. If any of you have been to Hawaii lately and seen a video on the plane or hotel about reef etiquette done by talking fish, it was the one he made. I'll give you a couple pictures now.
This is only the nets, ropes, and other entanglement hazards that we picked up on Eastern Island the last 2 trips. The boats barely stay above water but we make a good wake so the dolphins like it.
This is a hybrid between a Laysan Albatross and a Black-footed Albatross that we found when we were putting the satellite tags on. You can look at my previous pictures to compare the two.
