Masked booby

Masked Boobies fishing in the wake of our cruise ship in the tropical waters north east of Brazil, catching Cosmopolitan Flying Fish and Needle Fish.  The boobies spot their prey from high above and will follow the fish along the surface or into the sea at incredible speed.  Often the hunter is then harassed by another booby trying to relieve it of its prize.
