Red-billed Tropicbird banking in flight
Photographer: Steven Blandin
Location: South Plaza, Galapagos Islands
This Red-billed Tropicbird was doing some stunning flight acrobatics as part of its courtship display. Set from the top of a cliff I created this photograph while the bird was soaring and turning in the air to show off for a potential mate.
