... from the brand new designer sunglass collection spring 2013: No matter which colour you choose this style is designed to flatter. This exquisite frame looks retro, but still very feminine ...(thank you Rabauli) any orders please get in touch with Rabauli. - Galápagos- 1967

When the ancestors of swallow-tailed gulls started nesting on the Galapagos instead of returning to the North, they probably suffered heavily from frigatebirds, so they became the most nocturnal of all gulls. They developed some interesting adaptations to nocturnal lifestyle: in addition to large, very light-sensitive eyes, they have red eyering, which supposedly improves their ability to see bioluminescence. It is believed that the white bill tip helps the chick find the source of food when its parents return from the sea at night.
