Seymour Island

Our last day in the Galapagos Islands, we left the boat without breakfast, and landed on the small island of Seymour. Seymour featured sea lions, more blue footed boobies, and some nesting frigate birds. We were able to get a good view of several male frigate birds with the inflated red pouch, and even a few frigate bird babies. We witnessed a territorial argument between two blue footed booby couples, and saw our first land iguana in the wild (not counting the one that crossed our path when we landed at the airport).

Great pictures and very interesting blog !
I'm just coming back from Galapagos, where I visited Isabela, Floreana, EspaƱola, Santa Fe, Plaza Sur and Seymour Norte. So your pictures are telling me a lot... Unfortunately, I didn't see any albatros on EspaƱola since they arrive around april each year. But the remaining was just great. Greetings from Quito !
