The Midway Atoll is an important nesting place for Laysan albatross.

"Something that surprised us about the birds," Krüg says "are that they aren't scared of us, in fact they're so curious they come right up to us and sniff our lenses."

Here, Chris Jordan explores the island. The team has been in residence on Midway, producing a film about the island.
