We took the zodiac to the island just before sunrise. The light was amazing. <br /><br /><img src=\\"http://exceedwetsuits.com/images/blog/seymoursealion.jpg\\" alt=\\"seymoursealion\\" /><br /><br />There were many <a href=\\"http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blue_footed_boobie\\">Blue Footed Boobies </a>nesting on this island. Our guide was telling us that they usally have 2 eggs that hatch. One of the offspring will become dominant and push the other out of the nest where he/she will starve and die off. You can see that in this picture:<br /><br /><img src=\\"http://exceedwetsuits.com/images/blog/seymourboobie.jpg\\" alt=\\"seymour island booby\\" /><br /><br />
