The blue-footed boobies are one of the most seen birds in the Galapagos Islands, for they nestle near the coastline in many of the islands of the archipelago and also eat near their margins. They eat fish and marine invertebrates that they catch in the water. They are excellent fliers, able to reach great speeds and take advantage of the airflow to move.

La posture de ces deux oiseaux est excellente. Vous avez su saisir le bon moment pour donner à cette composition la force nécessaire.
Le résultat est excellent.

Good capture to a pair of bird that perching on the rock, just rare to see birds with blue legs, it is a beautiful and unique species, interesting composition, distinct photo in a cloudy day, good shoot.

One of the birds is shying away from you, which is not at all good in photography. The second bird is suspicious of you, as if you are clicking his spouse without permission. Now this is more dangerous.
If the situation continues like this, you need to wear a helmt, while clicking the shots of birds.
Thanks for the food for thoughts.

The bird to the left side is wonderful through the one eye that we can see.
Also the other bird is nice with the webbed on the rock.
I like your composition, splendid presentation.
Very well done, TFS.

un buen plano cerrado sobre estos dos pájaros, que se destacan con todo detalle sobre un cielo gris, y con un bonito contraste respecto de las rocas.
Me gustan sus patas de color azul, y cómo el de la izquierda parece estar mirándote con su ojo derecho.

A great capture of these strangely named birds. Stood on the rocks, they sit well against the cloudy background. Excellent detail.

These Bluefooted Boobies look very entertaining, great that you were able to get the low angle and was sufficiently far enough away so as not to disturb them. What amazing looking birds so close and simply stunning, clarity is adequate enough despite the weather conditions and sharp in natural colours. Fine photo work, Congrats

The rocks are helping to frame the birds. The point of view is showing the details and colours of the blue-footed boobies. The cloudy sky is giving a good contrast to the colours. Have a nice day.

An impressive nature scene from the Galapagos Islanda,
Glint (6171) 2013-09-10 13:04
wow! so you've been to the Galapagos. What interesting looking birds these are with their blue feet. You have captured them as they sit on a ridge of rock against the sky. I like the contrast of texture between rock and feather.
eldancer1 (36343) 2013-09-19 10:22
Very interesting and unusual (for me anyway) looking birds. Nicely captured with good pov and dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.

ficou bem bonita a imagem com os pássaros bem colocados, o azul de seus pés contrasta bem com a atmosfera cinzenta da compo. bem feito.
PS> acabo de voltar de férias na áfrica.

Very typical birds of Galapagos archipelago Alexandre with their special blue feet. A value report from a remoted place in the Pacific. Excellent resolution, natural colors and light. About the news and soccer it's a pity and a shame to see as a fan that Diego Costa is ready to play for another country than Brazil and also the coach didn't select him. Just a bracket..
All the best, have a nice day

Beautiful photo of the blue footed boobies. I would love to return to the Galapagos Islands one day. Even though I was so seasick when traveling here. These birds are just wonderful to see and all those wonderful islands are very special place on earth.

Você atrapalhou o namoro dos pinguins, mas valeu, porque a foto ficou boa e interessante. Gostei da textura das pedras e da penugem da ave. Bom trabalho!
