Brown Booby, カツオドリ

It was late in the afternoon on January 4th when the Booby came near the harbor. I had waited for this since December, so I grabbed my gear and followed it to the bay, where it patrolled the area between Nokonoshima and Marinoa. It often came close, skirting the beach of Atagohama and diving several times right in front of me. For a while I watched its speedy, elegant flight and many spectacular nosedives. It was a marvelous end of a wonderful winter day.

The sky was turning pink in the glow of the setting sun...

... and so was Booby's belly

At the same time between the fishing vessels: Black-necked Grebe, ハジロカイツブリ
