Blue-Footed Booby!

Blue-Footed Booby!

Originally uploaded by lindsontheroad

These birds, found only in the Galapagos, have a high cool-factor rating for two reasons:

1. They have blue feet. Beautiful, pale, robin’s-egg blue feet.

2. Their species name is ‘booby’.

Naturally, I needed to up my own cool-factor by finding and capturing one (on digital film, obvi). Fortunately, within a few hours of setting food on the Galapagos Islands, I met my first booby. What a blue-footed darling.
