Thanks for dropping by..another from our Galapagos trip..the fabulous Blue footed Booby.

A little blown out on the head, and I played around a touch with the background, but am sure someone will produce a better result..have a go? Smile

I was just happy to get that close!! Smile


The Blue-footed Booby is on average 81 centimetres (32 in) long and weighs 1.5 kilograms (3.3 lb), with the females slightly larger than the males. It has long pointed wings and a wedge shaped tail. They have strong, thick necks. The booby's eyes are placed on either side of their bill and oriented towards the front. They have excellent binocular vision. The Blue-footed Booby's eyes are yellow. The male has more yellow on its iris than the female. The Blue-footed Booby has permanently closed nostrils specialized for diving. They breathe through the corners of their mouths. Their feet range from a pale turquoise to a deep aquamarine. Males and younger birds have lighter feet than females do.

You've got to shoot first if it's your only opportunity because these things will never wait for you, still a good shot though.
