[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Blue footed booby's are among the most strange birds I have ever seen. I showed you this same bird a couple of weeks ago. On that photo he was standing in a very typical pose. On this photo I like the way he is looking. For more information about this bird I refer to the note I wrote before.

Hi Zeno, excellent details on this picture. Even to the back light you have very good exposure so beautiful colors and very nice BG.
very well done.

Hello Zeno!


Hello Zeno

Great shot, Zeno. I like these birds too, though I have never seen one in the flesh. I would love to. They look very goofy with their funny poses and blue feet. You caught this one with sharp details and good light. TFS. : )

Strange creature, I must say ! Is he angry Star Wars is over ?

Bonjour Zeno , je ne connaissais pas cet oiseau mais c'est un excellent cliché merci

I know this was posted a while ago, but I could not resist commenting, as it is posted in Featured Favorites. I can see why. What a funny bird is the booby, eh? Love these members of the gannet family and only dream of seeing one in the wild someday. Thank you for sharing.

I embossomed this kind of bird. I´ve been to Galapagos and really love the squinting look of blue foot boobys.
Nice picture and excellent composition of colors!
