This chick is a bit more mature than the first, as evidenced by the more advanced feather color and development. Our afternoon island trips typically started around 3:00 pm or so, and we headed back to the yacht around sunset. Consequently, as we had a fair amount of sunshine for much of the trip, we often had some nice late evening light for shooting, as evidenced in this image.
