Last week I flashed back to that time I went to the Galapagos Islands as a research volunteer. For 14 days I lived on a research boat, visited the islands of the Galapagos, and tagged little baby giant tortoises. The tortoises ere the stars, at least from my point of view, but anyone with a passing interest in animals, nature, genetics, evolution, or general science would love to visit the Galapagos. While tagging turtles was my main job, I had plenty of time to wander the island and snap photos of some of the other inhabitants of the islands.
This photo cracks me up. I can imagine all kinds of things these birds are thinking/doing. They could be a couple and one giving the other hell for some preceived wrong doing. Or they could be courting. Or they could be siblings getting into a fight. The possibilities are endless… and even in person, they were going at each other like cats and dogs.
