Our cruise ship ports of call in South America heading to Valparaiso are not necessarily world-class destinations. Sometimes the most excitement and most interesting photos are of the dock workers.
The blue-footed booby is one of the more well-known species of birds in the Galapagos Islands. This booby is looking skyward and has apparently spotted a female, so he begins to strut and dance.
My trip to the Galapagos Islands began with a long day’s journey to Quito, Ecuador. Prior to flying to my main destination of the Galapagos, it seemed like a visit to the rain forests of Ecuador was a good idea in order to spend a few days photographing a wide variety of birds.
