Some of the close-ups that we have taken so far.
A blue footed  booby - honest, it's feet are blue - we should get a better picture, but so far all those that we
have seen face on have been too far away.
We think this is a large-billed flycatcher. It was very tame and inquisitive. 
Galapagos pelicans. In Panama we had lots of brown pelicans. The Galapagos pelican is a subspecies and
to us they looked bigger. There's lots of them about and they following the fishing boats in and out. (There are
local fishing boats here.)
The lava heron.
