Blue-footed Booby From the Glass-bottom Boat

Posing blue-footed Booby, Galapagos Islands

I was delighted that this bird remained so calm as the boat approached. I got several views as the boat slowly moved along the shoreline.

While standing, they look rather odd. However, on our first day on the islands, when in flight and sitting on the water, they looked much more at home.

This perched view better shows the contrast between the bright blue legs and the bird’s body.
