CommentMost evenings as we sailed through the tropics Red-footed Booby would arrive at dusk to roost on the ship's mast. After dawn they would spend a few hours swooping on hapless flying fish put up by the bow of the ship. To capture this photograph I climbed onto the 'monkey' deck to get as high as possible and closer to eye-level just as the sun was setting. This is the white morph commonly found in the Coral Sea and Western Pacific.
