About this photo

The distinctive feet of the blue-footed booby, one of three species of the booby family found on the Galápagos Islands. The best time for bird-watching on the Galápagos is during the winter, from October to February. This is when the most migrant birds visit the islands, and breeding is very common. During this time, even inexperienced ornithologists can spot up to two dozen species. It was, after all, on these unique islands where Charles Darwin developed his groundbreaking theory of evolution.
