Sea birds in context

I'm finding a bird against sky a bit uninspiring and have been going over my shots for birds with some environment.

Here are some Albatross from the Southern Ocean south of Australia.

SS was 1/4000s as both the birds and the camera were moving quite a lot. A9 + 100-400 + 1.4 TC or D500.

Shy Albatross - wingspan up to 2.5m
