Blue-footed booby in a power dive

I lead a dive trip somewhere every year and always stay at locally owned hotels and use locally owned operators wherever possible. This brings money into the local community and provides a strong reason to preserve local resources. Four of us drove down from the United States, sharing gas costs and reducing our individual impact. I saw boobies diving after a scuba dive and headed out to the local harbor to shoot a series of photos.
