I enjoyed watching the frigates and the fishermen this morning. It is fun being that close to that large of a bird.
Here is the Grateful Dead playing accoustic Birdsong from 1980. Listen to this while viewing this post if you like. (Thanks to Lisa Brunetti at http://playamart.wordpress.com/ for the idea to add music to a post)
Here is a pan view of the beach being fished:

A view of the truck where the fish go into:
He said this truckload was worth about $300. Man, thats a lot of work for $300. Then I asked him how many truckloads today.
15 he said. Now that’s pretty good money. They have to split those $$ many ways though.
Fish being loaded in a truck:
There were literally thousands of frigates flying the beach today. John and I gawked at em for a while today on the front porch. It is truly mesmerizing watching them soaring in place, back and forth, up quite high and in large groups.
How many times do you get to photograph a frigate from above?

1 minute of fish jumping:
I think I got one!
Darn, I missed!
Wait for it… Wait for it… Here they come!!
Bunches o’ fish.
Here is a 1 minute video of 1 frigate soaring back and forth in about 50 feet of airspace.
Figuring it out… 1 bird and 1 fish at a time
