Blue-footed Booby
Photographer: Chuck Murphy
Location: Punta Pitt, Galapagos Islands
Story: 
As we cruised by a rock in our Zodiac off the island, I spotted this Booby by himself. When we got within camera range, I ran off a burst of four shots. On this frame, I got lucky and got him staring right down the lens barrel.
