Red Footed Booby
Red Footed Booby, Sula sula, Makapuu, Hawaii. While reknowned for being clumsy on the ground, these Red Footed Booby birds are nothing but graceful as they dance above the waves. I had never seen them in Hawaii before but found them flying just outside of the Makapuu lighthouse and then again off of Makapuu Beach. They are a wonderful sight to behold. These birds live up to twenty years and can be up to 30 inches wing to wing!
