This week we learned that several blue footed boobies were sighted along the California coast, a rare, but not unprecedented occurrence. The news reports flooding in reminded me of my own experience with blue footed boobies in the Galapagos, so I decided to dig out my old photo album (yes, this predates the age of digital cameras) and pull out the booby photographs. Here, for your Friday enjoyment, are a bunch of pictures of Blue Footed Boobies.
And, just to round things out, here’s a baby booby:
In case you’re wondering, yes, those white rings around the booby nests are booby poop. Isn’t nature wonderful?
All photos taken August 2001.
Comments that make irritating booby puns will be moderated, because that hasn’t been funny since at least 1995.
