18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
A Blue Footed Booby on an Island off San Cristobal

We had gone to a small Island off San Cristobal for a hike to see what wildlife it has to offer. This image of the Blue footed booby was made there when I saw her sitting on the rock. What I liked was the backdrop of the sea is shown in the image which is where she spends most of her day fishing for food.
