Another morning walk on Little Cayman shot. This youngster had ventured from its nest probably out of boredom as both parents were off fishing.

A nice record shot of a fledging red foot booby. The face and eyes are very sharp. I like the action of him scratching his face. A difficult situation to contend with the high contrast bright background. I'm not sure how to deal with the distracting highlights on the right. If you try to tone them down they will tend to turn gray.   Posted: 10/08/2021 17:02:35

The shot is fun and draws my attention. You captured the booby in interesting action. Its body is clear. I would suggest dodging its eyes to pull my attention there. I would also crop some of the blurred leaves on the left. For me they are a distraction.   Posted: 10/13/2021 05:39:18
