Photo Of The Day -- Galapagos Day 1

If you're like me, I thought the big thing in the Galapagos Islands was all the animals.   
I was wrong.

The big thing about the Galapagos Islands, it turns out, is not the animals.  It's the abundance of the animals (they are simply everywhere); and the fact that they are not afraid of humans in the least.   

It's the proximity to the wildlife that's the big thing ~ you can literally reach out and touch them ~ (except of course, you can't touch them, because that's not allowed; because then you would be teaching them to be afraid of humans).  I can't tell you how many times I nearly tripped over or stepped on some poor unsuspecting creature along the path.  We are visitors in their world, for sure.

You don't even need a zoom lens on your camera to get photo's like this one.......
