A field full of blue-footed boobies

All I had to do was sit on my cane/chair, under my big umbrella, and snap photo after photo of blue-footed boobies. A number of blue-foots are camouflaged among the rocks in the upper picture, and the tourists to the left are taking pictures of some we can't see here. Meanwhile, the male in the bottom picture is sky-pointing, either to impress his chosen mate or to frighten off other males. Blue-footed boobies are seldom very frightening, however, not even to one another.
