PIC OF THE WEEK: 04/11/16 • PREVIOUS WEEKALL 2016 PICSNEXT WEEK

Where: Oahu, HI • Makapu'u Point
Notes: It’s no surprise that several pelagic (seabirds) have found their way to Hawaii, since it is surrounded by the ocean for hundreds of miles in every direction. We had been hiking and birding from one side of the island to the other that day, literally. Now, late in the afternoon, my patience was beginning to wither. Suddenly a small group of three Boobies appeared out of nowhere, just my left and very close in. They popped out from behind a wave that had hidden their low level flight just above rolling water’s surface. We were expecting such flight photography opportunities where we positioned ourselves at the end of the pier at Makapu’u. My camera was already set with a high shutter speed and in an autofocus mode, ready for tracking a moving object. I was concerned the bird was too close in, because I had attached the 1.4X teleconverter. But the only option was to shoot with what I had at the moment. The birds were there within a few seconds and I released a burst with the shutter just before they became perpendicular to our position. The turquoise of the ocean, white rolling wave, and soft blues of the sky, make a pleasing tropical background for this breeding plumage bird image. This bird seemed to glance over with a quick look as it passed.
