weekly photo challenge: converge

Posted on

Today, we share a photo of an outdoor fish market on the island of Santa Cruz, one of the Galapagos Islands.

Where the pelicans converge for any fish that might be up for grabs.

How has everyone else interpreted converge? See here for more!

Tell us what you think of our choice for the theme this week.

    What a super photo, one unlikely to be duplicated by anyone else! Besides the seal and bird convergence, you have people converging on the market as well.

    I recognised this scene straight away! I think I have the exact same photo with a few sea lions in the mix too! What an incredible place!

      Isn’t the Galapagos just something so special to experience? 🙂 Loved just sitting here people and wildlife watching!

    Great photo for this week’s theme! Reminds me of the movie Finding Nemo and all the seagulls saying “mine, mine, mine, mine…”

      Hahahaha – You are so right! We can now just picture those pelicans saying the same 🙂

    the sea lion made me laugh – he has no shame whatsoever!

      Nope…no shame – that sea lion was upfront and reading to claim what he could 🙂

    Would love to photograph that. There is a few pelicans around Geelong which make great subjects…and yes I did spot the sea lion. Fantastic photo

      Thank you! The Galapagos has many wonderful things to photograph… Pelicans in general are very entertaining to look at 🙂

    That is one cheeky sea lion!

      Most certainly cheeky 🙂 Not sure how he even ended up at the front!

    The sea lion looks like it’s underneath the bench? This is a very creative interpretation of this week’s challenge. They must all be hungry pelicans…and they all look very patient and obedient! I hope they got something to eat in the end. Wishing you monkeys a happy weekend, the last weekend of spring for us! It’s a quiet one for me 🙂

      wisemonkeysabroad responded:
      November 29, 2014 at 8:37 pm

      Hehehe – yes Mabel! That sea lion is right up front under the bench….

      When we first arrived, the pelicans were probably several metres back… they slow crept up. It was very entertaining to watch the way they behave 🙂

      Summer is well on its way which means its also time for us to put up our Xmas tree….
      PS Enjoy your quiet weekend – we like those ones just to chill out at home!

    That reminded me of a visit to Lake Tawakoni Dam near Dallas, Texas. Where the water (and fish) flowed over the dam, there was a line-up of pelicans waiting for a free meal.

      Really?? Did you get a photo of that – we would love to see it! 🙂

      Those ever-hungry pelicans 😉

        If I have a picture it is buried away right now. If and when I find it, I will definitely post it. Maybe it would be a good excuse for another Texas trip. When I was there, my camera was not my constant companion like it is today.

    What a fun pic, typical pelican, but I’ve never seen a seal in the mix before!

      Hehehe – it was a sneaky fellow to be right up front too 🙂 Thanks for your comment!! Glad you liked it.

    Pelicans always seem to know when a free feed is on the cards.
