Tropicbird's Eye View
Photographer: Bryan Sabol
Location: Kauai, HI
Story: 
Being high up on the cliffs next to the Kilauea lighthouse on Kauai let me get eye-level to these beautiful tropicbirds. The steady onshore breeze enabled the birds to almost hover in place. The best moment was when this particular bird I was photographing turned to look at me as I fired off a series of shots, giving me this unique bird's eye perspective.
