Well having only loaded one photo from our wonderful holiday in south America last year I decided it was about time I loaded another one.

This is a Blue Footed Boobie Chick, I like the way the sun has captured it's downy feathers and the way the sun is coming though the red part of his beak.

Our holiday in the Galapagos Islands was wonderful and I would go back there tomorrow if I had the money and time.

Any comments/critique welcome, thanks for looking.

Robbie

This has to be the exposure challenge of a lifetime, sun and white down. You have conquered a difficult challenge well here and captured it very well, just a shame you weren't lower to the booby rather than looking down on it
Lovely capture
Richard

Thanks for your comments folks glad you liked it.

Richard I was crouched down when I took this photo, I did not really relish the idea of lying in all the bird poop that was around the booby's nest. I know I did not get 'down and dirty' on this one.

I am very pleased with the shot and I like the way it has come out.

Just a quick note to say that I entered this photo under the Natural History topic for the Ainsdale show on 5th July and I am pleased to say I was awarded first prize.

One of my other photos was awarded second prize.

I was pleased with the result as it was the first time I have entered any photographs in the show.
