p.1 #1 · Remembering the Galapagos...day 3...big bird....


In my 3rd day of posting from last years Galapagos trip, I decided that for today I would post this beauty and rather large bird. I believe this is the only site on earth that they nest. I present to you....The Waved Albatross.....enjoy

In case you missed them here are the first 2 days featuring the marine iguanas and the blue-footed boobies:

Very nice shots of a very elusive bird. I believe I may have seen one on the second hole of the Masters yesterday...what a coincidence!

Were you at the Masters? If so you are one lucky guy! That was an amazing last 2 days this year. Super quality golf.

Yes that would be amazing to play. I've never had much motivation to go and watch golf live but playing that course would be something else.

Thanks for all the positive comments.

It is actually fairly hard to not come back from the Galapagos with amazing pictures. There were 20 people on our boat and only 2 of us had DSLRs. The other guy had just bought a Nikon D5100 before the trip and was learning as he went. He learned fast and did great and had some amazing shots also that I missed.

I was amazed that the other 18 were just using P&S cameras but some of the older folks were more into just binoculars and just wanted to ID different species.
