Flock Of Guano Bombardiers
Reserva Nacional de Paracas, Perú

Loaded with fresh of guano readied for launch, these birds hovered hauntingly above us almost the entire trip. Only one passenger got nailed. There are literally tens of thousands of these birds on these islands. They eat fish, sleep on the rocks, and never come to mainland. A boring life if you ask me, but they have been doing it for thousands of years, so I guess they like it.
