Red-footed Booby, Galapagos
Not a layout - yet. DH and I returned from a three-week birding vacation in Ecuador and the Galapagos last week. I've just finished sorting through about 9,000 photos, winnowing them down to about 100, from which I need to select 25-30 for a holiday newsletter. I needed to share! I think this is my favorite. It's pretty much straight from the camera; I cropped a bit for better composition, and sharpened slightly, then added a stroke. I really was this close, and he seemed as curious about me as I was about him. Wheee!
