Transitions (24) More files...
Transitions are inevitable and often messy. Throughout their lives animals experience shedding to make way for new growth. By losing old feathers, skin and hair they are preparing for the new season or life stage. As you can see, these albatross chicks growing out of their downy feathers and geckos sloughing of their old skin aren't at their picture-perfect stage but that's natural. With a fresh start these creatures are ready for what the weather and world throws at them....
