In blue

When in Galápagos, you find there are plenty of “free shows” to see.

One of them is performed by the blue footed boobies. These birds are all around the islands. The Blue-foot dives into the ocean and swims underwater in pursuit of its prey.  Blue boobies travel in parties of about 12 to areas of water with large schools of small fish. When the lead bird sees a fish in the water, it will signal the rest of the group and they will all dive together in unison and go to depths of 80 ft.And then, the show starts again.
