Inspiration in the Wildest Places

Last September, we were fortunate enough to go to the Galapagos Islands and experience the wonderful creature that inhabit the islands. 

We were told not to go within 5 feet of the animals (the animals and everything on the islands is protected - including the stones) We we amused because on several occasions the animals were as close as in "you humans are going to have to step over me cause we're not moving."

At any rate, I fell in love with the Boobys. 

There are 3 kinds, the Blue-footed Booby, the Red-Footed Booby and the Nazca Booby.

Have tons of pictures - we watched a mating dance and they paid no attention to us.

I purchased a couple of figurines of the Blue=Footed Booby for inspiration. One was very realistic and the other was more "whimsical". 
Guess which one was my biggest inspiration - the funny one.

So here is my take - on the Blue-Footed Booby. HIs title is "Scooby Dooby Blue" - think Frank Sinatra.
