Photography: Galapagos Islands

I visited the Galapagos in Jan/Feb 2007, with a couple days on the mainland. As a student of evolutionary biology it was always a region of intrigue in my mind, which was enhanced after reading (or more accurately listening to the audiobook) the Pulitzer-Prize winning Beak of the Finch by Jonathan Weiner, a fantastic book!
