This is another in a series of distraction photo diaries. I refrained once again from using the BOOBIES! misdirection in the diary title although it is always quite tempting.
I know you want them so we will start with BOOBIES!
The Frigatebird sometimes feeds by harassing other seabirds until they gack up their catch which then then catch on the fly. They lack the ability to take off from the water but they still catch most of their foot by picking it from the surface. They do supplement their diet by the former tactic called, and this is the word of the day, kleptoparasitism. Can you say that? I knew you could.
And now for something completely different....
We go under the surface to see that is going on down there.
We had southeast winds on Saturday that brought in a layer of volcanic haze from the Big Island. It was pretty nasty (and Sunday was even worse as the winds became very light) but it made for these LA like sunset photos on Saturday evening.
Have a great week and please be good humans.
