Curious

Just a random bird in the Galapagos.

If it looks a little funny it’s because the bird as a little bit out of focus. At the time I took the photo, the lens was pretty new to me and I hadn’t quite mastered focusing it.

    I know it’s stone but that spot looks particularly comfortable.

    I took this in the Galapagos. It’s pretty self explanatory.

    In other news I have a snazzy new computer with a proper screen on it. You don’t want to know what I was using before.

      Flower

      Coming back from The Grotto (the best place to go swimming/cliff jumping) in the Galapagos spotted these really intricate flowers hanging over the trail.

      This is the result. I’d write more but I’m quite tired. If anyone can suggest a good title i’d be happy to change it.

        Sunbathe

        The Galapagos Marine Iguana is the only species of Iguana in the world that can live and feed in the sea. They can dive upwards of 15m for up to half an hour before they have to return to land and warm up. Probably the most interesting thing about them is they are relatively docile when warm but aggressive when they are cold as they can’t move very fast until they have sufficiently warmed up.

        Judging by the look on this guys face he must have been a little on the cold side. Kind of looks like an annoyed Jack Nicholson. At least I think so.

            Water Dance

            The first mate of the boat I was working on challenged me to get a good photo of a storm petrel. These birds dance on top of the water picking food off the surface. They are both small and fast making them a challenge to photograph. Seventy five exposures later I had one good photo. Very rewarding in the end.
