Horrid beasts and mutations from the Galapagos Islands
I think I went overboard with the photos on my trip to the Galápagos Islands. I'm actually embarrassed to mention how many I took. But in my defense, the light was constantly changing and I had to take about 3 shots of everything to try to achieve the perfect white-balance.
Here are some photos from my first folder of photos. The first folder of many, haha.
[Above] Sally Lightfoot Crab
[Below] Green Pacific Turtle - it is a unique animal with 3 legs (seen in this photo) in addition to its 2 arms.
[Below] The view from the top of Bartolome island. All of the Galapagos Islands exist due to volcanic activity.
[Below] Ninja Star
[Below] Godzilla. He was climbing up a cliff-face at a dizzying pace so I only managed to get a shot of his legs.
[Below] A stalker - or the equivalent in the animal kingdom.
[Below] Sea lions - a mother with its new-born baby. Cute, no?
[Below] Fight, fight, fight...
[Below] Birds. Aren't you glad I clarified that?
[Below] Mutated duck with blue feet.
[Below] Brown Pelican
[Below] Fishermen being chased by giant flies and mosquitoes. Yep, evolution has gone wild on the Galapagos Islands. If only Charles Darwin was around to see it.
[Below] A bird flying over the moon without oxygen or rockets.
