A young male (I think) Brown Booby (Sula leucogaster) skipping across the water to pounce on a school of fish. Mature birds have a pure white chest, but young juveniles don't have that sharply defined edge to the brown.

ISO2000, 420mm, f5.6, 1/4000, on OM-1.

Great action capture of this booby style approach to fishing, Greg!
