I just returned to the mainland from the Galapagos portion of our Ecuadorian visit. While on Isla Isabela we took a small boat to Tintoreras, and on the cruise over to the island we found a few Blue-footed Boobies on the hunt. This bird was diving in front of a large lava rock as it tried to spot a meal.

Excellent capture - very impressed by the hand held combo (Z9 & 800mm) on a boat!
