The blue-footed booby is native to subtropical and tropical regions of the Pacific Ocean. They can easily be recognized due to their comically bright-blue feet. However, the blue feet are actually a sexually selected trait, the male boobies will display their feet in an elaborate and quite interesting mating ritual. He will lift them up and down before strutting towards the female. 

There's no doubt about it, the blue-footed booby is as strange as it is beautiful and we can't help but love how awkward these fellas look in each image.
