That's the Spot
Here's a good view of the nares--what we call nostrils in humans. Whereas most birds rely on eyesight alone to find their food, albatross also employ their strong sense of smell. But these nares do more than just sniff out food. They also work like "pitot tubes" in airplanes, allowing albatross to measure airspeed while in flight, so they can maximize the way air moves over water, and, thereby, turn wind into power and soar over the surface of sea for tens of thousands and thousands of miles.
- Photography on metal
- Satin finish/minimal glare.
- Ready to hang.
- The 12x12-inch and 8x8-inch metal prints come with 1/8-inch rounded corners and float 1/2″ off the wall when hung.
- The 4x4-inch metal prints come with square corners and a magnetic back.
A little about the metal: The image is infused directly into specially coated sheets of aluminum, adding a magical luminescence to the image. Professional lab testing shows image stability of the metal print is two to four times that of traditional silver-based photo papers. And for those of you who live in salty, humid climates like Hawaii, I've done my own testing, too. I left a print on my covered lanai to test for corrosion. One year later and no rust or pits of any kind have appeared. In fact, cleaning the dust and salt buildup is fast and super easy--a wet rag and mild soap. Because if you're like me, you'd rather be out in nature than inside the house wielding a dust rag.
