恭祝大家牛年快樂, 身體健康, 想和大家分享早前在加拉帕戈斯群島拍的照片.

加拉帕戈斯群島 (Galapagos Archipelago) 位於厄瓜多爾西面約一千公里外的東太平洋赤道上, 由幾百萬年前海底火山活動所形成.


8日7夜的海上旅程, 從飛機降落Baltra Airport 開始


就在機場外見到這隻 female lava lizard


我乘的船


Great frigatebirds 隨船而飛


Bachas Beach




趣緻的 blue-footed boobies 藍腳鰹鳥


面相有點可怖的海鬣蜥原是素食的


在Isla Santiago 的 Sullivan Bay, 乾涸經年的熔岩, 金屬黑色的, 有各式各樣的紋理, 可以幻想火山爆發時, 熔岩流動的形態.








熔岩上的Sally light-footed crab


在Isla Bartolome, 登上了小山頂, 極目遠望, 奇岩怪石的海岸, 景色不錯.








Isla Genovesa 位於Galapagos的北面邊緣, 是眾多島嶼中最年輕的, 形成不到一百萬年.  


島上一片荒涼, 只有少量動植物生長, 卻有許多海鳥棲息.


優雅機靈的 red-billed tropicbird 令我着迷




Isla Santa Cruz 較熱鬧, 有旅館, 食店, 超市, 旅行社等, 而 Darwin Research Station 就在島上.


Darwin Station 裡的巨龜, 原來 Galapagos是西班牙文, 解作 saddle, 從saddle-backed Galapagos tortoises 而來..


在Santa Cruz 山上的巨龜








Isla Floreana有個18世紀留下的郵筒, 當時書信是靠途經的船員傳送.






島上有個瀉湖, greater flamingos 在棲息, 山上看湖中日落很美啊!








Isla Espanola 位於 Galapagos 的最南面, 島上的沙灘, 有過百海獅聚集, 有些較惡, 還會追人!




因為島上缺乏水源, 以前途經的船員總會帶水登岸, 所以 mockingbird會追著人, 想攞水飲.


島上有許多海鳥棲息, 唯一在此島見到信天翁, 更是看 Galapagos Hawk的好地方;




Isla South Plaza是個美麗的小島, 有顏色搶眼的陸鬣蜥, 有紅橙黃的sesuvium flowerbeds非常耀目, 當中又長著高大的Opuntia cacti, 懸崖邊更有許多海鳥在飛翔.










行程最後一站是 Isla North Seymour, 有大量的 blue-footed boobies, swallowtailed gulls, frigate birds在島上棲息繁殖.




原來blue-footed booby 的藍腳是求偶條件之一, 越藍越吸引.


Magnificent frigate 則漲起紅包氣袋, 大唱求偶之歌.




再見 Galapagos


多謝點閱 !

Curious how much does it cost for a trip like this, thanks.

The cruise cost starts from US$749 for 4 day and 3 night. It depends on no. of days, type of boat and season . Some promotion package may include flight from Quito, Captial of Ecuador and hotel at Quito. Apart from wildlife watching, Galapagos is also a paradise for diving.

會點俾佢哋飲呀, 沙灘喎....?

以前我諗佢哋係偷水飲, 今日當然無遊客敢比水佢哋飲 ! 在島上一舉一動都有 field guide 看著, 當然不能接觸佢哋, 只係佢哋可能有遺傳因子, 知道人嚟就有水飲, 所以至唔怕人.

我在網上看過 一段短片 , mockingbird 見到遊客背囊上個水樽, 就啄來啄去, 不得要領.

One hell of a dream place to visit, if only not for the costly price.

Time is the biggest concern.  
My understanding from the seminar is fly to Ecuador route through Florida.  And there is no reason not to stay another week in Ecuador for the hummingbird.  Plus 8 days in Galapagos + 2 days flight time, so altogether the trip is 15-20 days trip.  

If time is not a concern, there are too many birds in Florida waiting.

I definite want to go after hearing the seminar.

好似我喺個presentation講, D crusise可平可貴, 視乎你去幾多日同邊D島, 做咗個 Full Itinerary to Ecuador 2008可以參詳吓。

Short-eared owl 唔係特有種, 世界其他地方都有; 喺Galapagos就話最好喺Genovesa, 而我地就喺South Plaza先見到。

相片真美

Great photos!! cam

Ecuador is such a nice country to visit; many naturalists will be amazed by its biodiversity. Snow capped volcanoes, the Andes, rainforest & cloudforest, the Pacific coast and certainly the Galapagos Islands.

For the trip of lifetime, things that are missing from your itinerary are the Amazon trip and the local Quito tour.
The Amazons with its insects and birds is another must. Why take another trip going to Peru or Brazil for the Amazons while Ecuador Amazons is more accessible and a few days there will impress most naturalists and bird watchers.
A day tour of Quito to Mitad del Mundo (Equator), Pululahua Volcano Crater and Old Town Quito with its churches, Spanish town square & buildings and Panecillo Hill is also spectacular and only required an extra day.

I have posted a thread for the Ecuador hummingbirds that you must have seen during your stay: http://www.hkwildlife.net/viewth ... &extra=page%3D1

I agree that Amazon forest in Ecuador is a very nice place to go to (at the right season as it can be very muddy...).
Instead of Quito tour, I would recommend the parano landscape in Cotopaxi then heading south to Banos (much more relaxed, less polluted and violent than Quito and in a superbly green location). Superb place for plants and birds (tanagers in particular).
And the mangroves close to Guayaquil are some of the last true mangrove forests on the Pacific Coast with a few endemic species, including a green macaw. My only regret was not to go to the area close to Mindo, during my visit of the country.

We considered Ecuadorian Amazon when planning the trip but finally we gave it up as we wanted to have more focused bird photography at a specific location rather being rush and spending too much time on travelling though Ecuador is comparatively small.  And definitely Galapagos is just once for lifetime but probably not for Ecuador.   By the way, thanks for sharing of your hummingbirds and hope I can have mine fully processed for posting soon.
