I watch with fascination the mating shuffle of the Blue Footed Booby, had so much fun trying to capture the action of the gulls, frigate birds and the boobies in a feeding frenzy we instigated and was amazed at the fighting spirit of one little Hummingbird defending his feeding station.


To photograph over 100 species of birds is a credit to our tour leader Nate Chappell.
