Masked Booby in Flight, Galapagos Islands

Category: Outdoor Scenes


Photo and caption by Linda Lipkin

Sometimes you know you've snapped at the right moment, and this was one of those times. We were on a small motor boat, traveling from Floreana to Isabela, and a few Masked Boobies were flying above us. Despite the waves -- and facing directly up toward the sky -- I shot as quickly as I could.

Location: near Isabela Island, Galapagos
