An excursion to the Galapagos Islands involves the observation of many animals such as the land iguana, aquatic iguanas, sea lions, various bird species like the blue-footed boobies, tortoises and more.
Well, the blue footed booby certainly ranks as one of my favorites! Not just because of it’s silly name that helps the locals sell provocative t-shirts to tourists, but because they can look stunning and regal one moment and cute and dopey the next. I took many photos of these little guys and it was hilarious to see how different they looked in each one.
They may look similar to seagulls, but those bright blue feet put them in a league of their own.
