[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is my third post showing the "Sula leucogaster", commom name's Atobá or Mergulhão here in Brazil, white-bellied booby in english.
Here you see the bird searching the ocean for his food. He is a wonderful diver and can fall from the sky to catch his fishes.

Hi Jose Augusto,
Good capture of this bird.
I like the frontal POV used and the flying pose catched on the atoba.
I like also the composition made with the sea and the bird.
Well done and thanks for share.
My best regards,

Another lovely capture of the booby, Jose.
I am quite intrigued by the strong lines and angles in its wings: not a gentle sweep as one sees in most birds.
Superb composition

Olá, Zeca. Esta está, em minha opinião, ainda melhor que as outras.

Excelentes cores e exposição. Também gosto muito do ângulo. A composição é excelente.
