Until now we had only seen blue-footed boobies in small numbers, but here a large flock was feeding along
the rocks, moving like a swarm of bees and diving like gannets.
We tend to take pelicans for granted as they've been around most of the time we've been in the tropics.
My favourite tropical bird - tropic birds. They are so graceful and unlike anything else. We have seen
them very rarely. This and the following pictures are the red-billed tropic bird which is only found in
the Galapagos islands.
