Photography: Galapagos Islands

Day 7: Espanola Island

Espanola Island was a magical island. The water was incredibly beautiful and clear aquamarine, and we saw many different species here. The marine iguanas are the most colorful on this island, with reds and greens. When the birds have their beaks open as you see in the photos, they are not making noise but rather regulating their temperature.

I really like the symmetry of this shot.
