Galapagos penguins: the only penguin species found in the northern hemisphere (just barely). All photos by Bruce R. Thaler.
Blue-footed boobies: the stars of the show. Their eyes are blue too.
Frigate birds soaring above the boat . . .
and showing off on land.
Galapagos flightless cormorant–these guys are fascinating!
Swallow-tailed gulls, the only gull that hunts at night (hence those huge eyes).
What, no giant tortoises? Yes, we saw them too. And lots, lots more.
