Galapagos Islands

weekly photo challenge: on the move

Posted on

Our choice for this week’s theme are two photos we snapped while visiting the Galapagos Islands.

These birds were peacefully perched upon this rusty boat and suddenly were “on the move”

What disturbed them?

weekly photo challenge: treasure

Image Posted on

The Weekly Photo Challenge asked us what we treasure….

We treasure each other and our families of course. But for this challenge, we are showing another thing we treasure: the world around us.

The one experience that we both hold dear is when we were able see Lonesome George in his last months on earth. Lonesome George was the last of the Pinta Island tortoises and is the Galapagos Island conservation icon.

He represents to us how precious and vulnerable nature is and how much we need to treasure it!

This week, in a post created specifically for this challenge, show us community, and interpret it any way you please!

And this is how we interpreted it…..

A community of marine iguanas on the Galapagos Islands

And this was a close knit community
