The image above, which looks like an abstract modern stained-glass window, is a photo of bits of plastic retrieved from the stomach of a Laysan albatross fledgling. The bird was found on a Hawaiian atoll.
This image is from the cover of the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society B (Biological), a special issue which contains a symposium on the effects of plastics on our world.
