Islas Plazas, Galapagos, Ecuador, sep 20, 2012

"One of a pair of small uplifted islands a short distance from the east coast of Santa Cruz, South Plaza has a unique landscape of colourful Sesuvium plants and Opuntia cacti and provides some of the most interesting wildlife observation spots in Galapagos. Land iguanas are easily seen from the trail. Swallow-tailed gulls, pelicans and shearwaters, along with other sea birds use the rising air to glide effortlessly over the escarpment. The protected rocky seashore is prime habitat for a large colony of playful sea lions." Excerpt from the Semilla Verde custom trip designs website.
