Almost ten years ago I took this picture and since then it brings me a clear little memory of that day. It was in a dry and desertic island (Lobos de tierra, Peru) where there are no people (just that is a dream for me), but only thousands of seabirds nesting (around this time of the year). And it's very rare, near to impossible, to see a Nazca booby (Sula granti), which is more abundant in other pacific islands, like the famous Galapagos. We heard that a couple of pairs could be found on the southernmost tip of the island, but after a 5 hours walk under harsh wind and equatorial sun we couldn't find anything. Just before the sunset we were about to give up the "hunt". The landscape was so desolate, without any form of life around us, with a very stinky smell of rotten sea lion nearby. Everything was telling us to go away to go back. When all the initial hope and motivation was gone, there, suddenly a majestic specimen started to glide above us...whoa! It was magnificent in its bright white coat of feathers, and finally brought us to see their little colony of 4 nests and 4 couples with their (fratricidal) chicks born few days before.
