Diving Blue Footed Booby, Tortuga Bay, Galapagos. Blue Footed Booby fish by hovering above the water and, when finding something worth eating, dive at tremendous speeds, hitting the water at up to 60mph. Air sacks within their skull help protect their brain from the hard impact with the surface of the water
