Galapagos Islands - Day 3 - Espanola - Punta Suarez

This was my personal favorite stop of the trip.  For many, the blue footed booby is the first animal you think of when the Galapagos comes to mind.  So to see them by the hundreds and hundreds was most excellent.  They do not disappoint.  And they are guaranteed to bring a smile to your face as you watch them do their dance.

One of the things I was looking forward to seeing was a booby coming in for a landing.  As seen on TV it's a hilarious affair--they throw out their big feet in front of them as a brake.  I was close to capturing this, but I was just too slow with the camera...

Not a dance...just an ear scratch...
