I'm looking for pics of "diving boobies" in Galapagos

Postby samzc68 » Wed Feb 09, 2011 3:30 pm

I did a 6 day tour and on the last morning we were taken to an inlet (mangrove area) looking at rays - the highlight of that trip for me was watching the blue footed boobies flocking overhead and then diving into the sea to catch fish. My camera and camcorder by that time were out of battery ! Does anyone have any photos they could share with me ?

Thanks in anticipation

Sam

I think you're here at the wrong place. If it was a GAP-Tour, you should get a mail
with the contacts of your fellow travellers from your specific trip and
then you can give them a private mail. There's little chance to find them here.

I'm not trying to find the people on my GAP trip for their photos - they didn't send/post them as they said they would ! Just anyones photos of the diving boobies if they are happy to share them. Thought it would be worth a try on here anyway :roll: !

Hey, Sam, you could also try your posting in the South America forum. Lots of people there will have been to the Galapagos.

And, Daniel, you know the rules here...any other kind of boobie pics get removed by the Moderators (and maybe filed away for later use :wink: ) !
:lol:

The diving boobies are impressive....I watched them for hours when I was on Isabella Island.

They were also diving all around me when I went snorkelling once....kind of made me think....what if one of them thought I was a fish or lost control and speared me in the back?

Fun memories.....but no photos I'm afraid.

I think I have some pictures albeit at a distance and with a point-and-shoot. Will look for them tonight.

Hopefully I attached it correctly, but here's one of my photos from a couple years ago. Enjoy!

Yeah this post was a big dissapointment. :lol: Even a google image search for "diving boobies" turned up nothing but pictures of birds. :roll:
