Photographer's Note

In this photo a male frigate bird sail gracefully in the air currents overhead as it's stongly hooked beak grabs a freebie from our boat cook. Their wingspan is some 7.5 feet and their deeply forked scissor like tails afford them ultimate maneuverability, allowing them to soar all day nearly effortlessly on thermal drafts.
It is common in the skies of the Galapagos waters to see these large black birds hovering lazily in place looking for all the world like kites.

I intended to crop this photo but the end result i did not like so i kept it as is, a little bit cluttery i think but i like it, it's a decisive moment, i snap while the bird is hovering above , the girl, the flag, they just happen to be there..
