[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
In fact two chicks of a blue footed booby. When there is enough food around both will survive, otherwise the bigger one will throw its nestmate out. The second is always smaller, as you can see just behind the bigger one. The nice blue feet, which you can see of the parent, they will get when they are older. The older the more blue they get.

Just the title made me take a look. I think this is a really sweet photo, Liesbeth. I hope the ugly little chick grows up to be better looking!

Hi Liesbeth,
beautiful shot - and the blue colour ... I like it
