A Dream come True

Ever since I was a kid, I have dreamed of visiting the Galapagos Islands. I grew up watching nature shows and got into birding when I was 8 years old. I remember watching shows about the birds and animals of the Galapagos, the Darwin’s finches, Giant Tortoises and Marine Iguanas. So I finally decided to go with my sister and we had a fantastic time. Here are some photos from our trip…

My first Giant Tortoise!
Marine Iguana
Wild Flamingo
Galapagos Penguins
Magnificent Frigatebird

In my travels I had seen Frigatebirds before, and they are amazing. But I had always wanted to see one with it’s gular pouch inflated during breeding season, and I was not disappointed. Truly amazing sight!

I have many more photos to share but thought I would show a few. Next post will be all about the boobies, stay tuned!
