Ecuador

Laura and I recently got back from the trip of a lifetime: nearly three weeks in Ecuador, including a solid week in the magnificent Gal├ípagos islands. Pretty much a photographer and biology-enthusiast's dream vacation. Photosets here.

We didn't make it to the southwest islands — so no waved albatrosses —, but getting to Genovesa more than made up for it. Lots of nesting and mating blue and red-footed boobies in addition to many frigate birds with chicks and juveniles still in nest — all of which were pretty much totally non-plussed by our presence on the island.
