[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Nazca Booby, Sula granti

Galapagos is of course famous for sea birds and a paradise for photographers as the animals are so easy to approach. Consequently, there are lots of very good pictures from the islands.

I chose this one because of the feeding behaviour, with the brown juvenile reaching right down its parent's throat to take a meal of regurgitated seafood.

A hand held photo in natural lighting, cropped slightly and resized to meet TN limits. Only some sharpening in Photoshop; the colours are natural an unchanged.
