Weekly Photo – Flamingos in the Galapagos Islands

Posted in: Ecuador Travel, Galapagos Islands

So certain things you expect to see on a hike through a swamp. Like mosquitoes and black files. Maybe some frogs and little birds.

But huge, long necked PINK FLAMINGOS are not on the list of what you expect. At least this isn’t a common find for us. Pink flamingos are the tacky plastic things that people who “love” you put all over your front lawn on special days. When we first saw them, it was kind of hard to believe they were real. There we some many of them, and they were SO pink!

By the way: We didn’t see any mosquitoes, black flies or frogs on this hike. I guess the Galapagos Islands really are a special place.
