Here is another bird we saw on our excursion to Islas Ballestas.  It’s the Inca tern, (the smaller charcoal-colored birds to the left of the larger Peruvian booby) and it sports a stunning red bill, orange feet, and delicate white and yellow designs on its head.

In this shot we have a number of mother sea lions, many squirming pups, and a huge male near the center of the image:
