Baltra island harbour in the Galapagos Noddies mob fishing Brown pelicans. In order to limit theft of their kill I noticed how the Pelicans keep their beaks underwater longer after a catch, waiting till the Noddy departs. #Galapagos#wildlifephotography#birdphotography
The Galápagos Islands is a volcanic archipelago in the Pacific Ocean. It's considered one of the world's foremost destinations for wildlife-viewing. A province of Ecuador, it lies about 1,000km off its coast. Its isolated terrain shelters a diversity of plant and animal species, many found nowhere else. Charles Darwin visited in 1835, and his observation of Galápagos' species later inspired his theory of evolution.
We still have to pinch ourselves occasionally when we see pictures like this and are reminded that we actually went to the Galápagos Islands earlier this year! What a week and what a journey. Forever grateful🙏❤️. #sponsoredtrip#visitwithus
Witam was po chwilowej przerwie .. ale już wróciłam z naładowanymi bateriami 😊
Ostatnio miałam bardzo dużo czasu na obejrzenie filmów , dlatego w ręce wpadła mi kolejna nowość 👍
Produkcja Warnera , tak mnie wciągnęła , że chciałam obejrzeć kolejny film.
Film "Shazam " @mojefilmydvd opowiada o 14 letnim bohaterze , który przemienia się w herosa , wypowiadając magiczne słowo "Shazam". Zostaje poddany próbie , podczas walki z złym doktorem Sivaną.
Oglądał ktoś? Jak wrażenia? 👌
This picture perfectly illustrates how much I love sunshine☀️
Long before I started work on my @natgeo Galapagos story I envisioned making a photograph that would juxtapose a marine iguana with a school of fish. Transforming the scene lodged in my mind into reality took many hours, over many days, following a school of surgeon fish. It was only towards the end of my stay at a remote spot that a marine iguana finally swam through the frame and I got the image. Shot on assignment for @NatGeo in collaboration with @parquegalapagos@charlesdarwinfoundation@pelayosalinas
The winners of this year’s Galapagos calendar photo contest have been selected! The grand prize and 2020 calendar cover goes to Lauren Brandes of Pittsburgh, PA for this image of a land iguana framed by cacti on South Plaza Island. Lauren told us, “We were following the guide and I spotted this guy off to the side, perfectly framing himself (or herself!) between the cacti. I had to get down on my knees to get a shot on his level and he posed perfectly. I especially love the little piece of grass hanging out of his mouth, like he just finished a great meal. It was like nature created its own frame for him and it was the perfect shot.” Congratulations, Lauren!
You can view all the winners and pre-order the 2020 calendar, which features an additional 40 “honorable mentions” that appear as small details throughout the calendar. The calendar is currently with the printer and will be available to ship (US & Canada only) in early October! Order your copy and view all the winning photos at the link in our profile.

The sea lions of the Galapagos use sand and other materials to camouflage themselves from predators and evade detection. Kidding. They do, however, emit a series of very unpleasant smells and sounds that are more than enough to make me keep my distance. Observing these, the birds at Puerto Ayora’s fish market, and the other fauna of the islands was a constant source of enjoyment during my time here. That time is now over and I look forward to getting back to reality
Two years ago, I found myself living on a beautiful little island off the coast of Honduras called Utila. It was here that I completed my dive training and became a Scuba instructor (in addition to completing a rigorous trimix tec diving course). I spent nearly two months there and it was a time that I cherished. However, when I returned back home—and not even to my real home but the supplanted one where my college is—it had been well over three months since I had touched clay. Furthermore, I was without a suitable studio. I found one in the neighborhood of my new school but it became clear quickly that this was not an acceptable option. As it turns out, this opinion was shared, and my current studio has taken in a number of refugees from that space. All told, it took about six months for me to get properly situated at my studio in Bridgeport and return to a proper rythymn of throwing. Those six months were profoundly unpleasant
I cannot recall when I did this, but I made a promise to myself that I would never let diving get in the way of my artwork ever again. I was as surprised as anyone when I actually followed through on my word. It is difficult for me to spend long periods of time away from the studio. The reason is twofold: firstly, my skills do get rusty as I spend time away from the wheel and secondly, I have a profound love of the work that I make. Pottery has opened a great many doors for me, but in this sense, it has closed a number as well. I look forward to getting my hands back in some clay in the coming days

Getting around in Tena wasn’t as straightforward as we’d expect: as there’re so few people around Tena, people depend on getting a ride from passing cars & trucks. It wasn’t our first time hitchhiking, but it’s never been this easy as most locals will always help hitchhikers #bucketlistec

A few of the other native residents of the Galapagos including Mola Mola (ocean sunfish), spotted eagle rays, sea turtles, and marine iguanas. When I first saw a Mola Mola in an aquarium, I thought it was the most ridiculous looking fish I’d ever seen and that it must surely have been in some horrible accident given how disfigured it looked. However, these 2000+ pound fish get along just fine despite their odd appearance. The over abundance of food under the waves in the Galapagos means that a large variety of large animals can be sustained year round. I am not sure if the concentration of such animals is higher anywhere else on earth. The strong currents and cold water provide more than enough nutrient to support the huge population of fish, sharks, whales, seals, rays and much more
