Laughing Frequently, Photos of Fauna Blue-footed Booby, Galapagos 03 January 2017 04 October 2017 Birds I swear that these birds spread panic wherever they go. It’s hard to look ’em in the eye and not get caught up in it. Save National Treasure #79: Randy Bachman National Treasure #80: Vince Coleman 7 Comments JimTaylor 08 January 2017 at 11:44 am 3 years ago After visiting the Galapagos so long ago, I made an effort to emulate the blue-footed booby’s mating dance. The only thing it stimulated Joan to was helpless laughter. Oh, yeah, I got a sore back. Jim T Isabel Gibson 08 January 2017 at 12:00 pm 3 years ago Jim T – That comes perilously close to TMI. As for the specifics of the (failed) dance, I assume you remembered to pick up a small twig in your mouth, show it to Joan, and then casually toss it away. That can make all the difference, or so I hear. Judith 08 January 2017 at 2:49 pm 3 years ago How dare you invade his territory! Great photo. Isabel Gibson 08 January 2017 at 2:54 pm 3 years ago Judith – Thanks! I swear they have this startled/stupid look all the time, independent of events. An odd way to go through life. Alison 08 January 2017 at 8:40 pm 3 years ago He/she? Reminds me of Big Bird with a bleach job, which might account for the startled look. Isabel Gibson 08 January 2017 at 8:45 pm 3 years ago Alison – I don’t know the he/she-ness. I think I knew which was which at the time (lead dancer was male, egg sitter was female – I think) but now I don’t remember which booby-ish look went with which booby. Comments are closed.
