Animals of South America

I traveled to Peru, Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands in 2009.
Seeing the native animals up close left an indelible mark on me.
My motivation for visiting the Galapagos were the tortoises.
I am attracted to the metaphor of the tortoise. He/she can go inside
when needed, and come out when they please.

Here is a link to the book I created compiling the best of my 
animal photos:

January Whale Watching

It has been 30 years since the sightings of whales migrating
south from Alaska to Baja have been this plentiful. 
And though we've lived here for over 30 years, 
it is the first time we've ventured out on a whale watching boat. 
No disappointments on this voyage! It was absolutely thrilling!
