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.

We went hiking up the mountain behind Kotor. We kept running accross this “thistle” which looked dead and dried out except for a flash of color in the stems near what I assume is the remnants of the flower. They were rather striking however difficult to photograph. I’m not sure I like the results however it’s all I have this week as my priorities are elsewhere with the holidays and all.

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.Leave a reply
