The beach was a great place for Blue Footed Booby photos, as I was able to catch lots of them diving for food. Although, naturally, the absolute best sequence of an airborne booby that I captured was slightly out of focus. Such is the nature of bird photography - they're extremely quick, and even when you've got a greate camera and have rented a very nice telephoto lens -- well, the subject tracking auto focus can still mis-fire. I still got far more, and far better, bird photos than I have anywhere before.
There was a lot of this beautiful green vegetation near the beach providing contrast with the volcanic rocks, and more opportunities to get wildlife photos with beautiful green backgrounds, when they weren't down by the water's edge.
In the evening, we kayaked around just northwest of our earlier beach landing, ending in a spot where you can see Kicker Rock perfectly framed in a natural break that's eroded in the cliffs.
