When the boat comes in

20111031-232503.jpg

We were so lucky to be at the beach on the Pacific side of this beautiful country when the fishermen unloaded their, thankfully for us, small catch. A lot of effort was expended by ten or so men hauling a largeish net onto land. I was worried that it might be a gruesome experience for us nature lovers, as I was expecting a lot of exotic species such as squid, sharks, snappers etc. The catch that morning was only a few sprats however. But that didn’t stop the huge flock of enormous (I would guess 6 foot wing span) frigate birds getting tremendously excited!

  1. What a beautiful photograph. You should enter it in a competition!
    Did you ever watch the Alfred Hitchcok classic film “The Birds” Hope you have a good zoom lense on your camera…the birds look really quite scary

    • Thanks Pip! :)

      I do have a zoom, but actually I was right in the middle of the action with all these pterodactyl -like frigate birds swooping over my head. It didn’t feel scary though. The Birds is one of my favourite films. :D
