David Attenboro's Galapagos Adventure

I know from personal experience that there can never be too many photographs of the magnificent and diverse menagerie that inhabits the Galapagos Islands.  Here in Galapagos you will see an abundance of animals, birds and marine life. Not only that, it's almost impossible to take a bad photograph of the bounty that lives throughout Galapagos on the land and in the sea. And within that array, one baby sea lion after another presents a unique photo opportunity. Every so often, extraordinary photos are taken and shared with all of us, making our Galapagos vision even more exciting, inviting and memorable.

This is the case with the latest series of photographs taken by David Attenboro's professional camera crew on their recent trip to Galapagos. David Attenboro is a world renowned British broadcast journalist and naturalist who has produced many fantastic shows focusing on the natural beauty throughout our planet. His most recent Galapagos adventure is a 3-D masterpiece, unfortunately only broadcast so far in the United Kingdom. (You can learn more about the Attenboro show here.)

But, on line, he has published some great still photographs from his voyage and I want to share them here with you.

As far as Attenboro's television show is concerned, one part of it focuses on the unique Galapagos Marine Iguana - the only iguana on the entire planet to swim and get its nutrition from the ocean. I've written a few comprehensive blog posts about our marine iguana, which you can read here: Galapagos land and marine iguanasA Photographic Review of Galapagos Iguanas.

I think it's also worth taking a look at Attenboro's excerpt from his Galapagos television show to get an underwater look at the marine iguana as an iconic example of the evolution of the species.

David Attenboro's spectacular new documentary is one of several made in the past 12 months. I'll share the others with you in upcoming posts.
