Weekly Photo Challenge: Motion

49

From Genovesa.

A male frigatebird in flight, ID’d by his hooked beak, forked tail, and red throat pouch.  There are so many seabirds on the cliffs of Genovesa, it was easy to capture one (or several) in motion.  I think I see a green sheen to his feathers, which would make him a great frigatebird; purple would indicate a magnificent frigatebird.

    What a beautiful photo, such an elegant bird. Love the landscape framing too… The little slither of grass makes it really interesting.

      Thank you, my husband also said he liked that tiny bit of vegetation in the photo 🙂
      Frigatebirds are very photogenic!
