A splash of color on the rocks

My Best Shot

October 07, 2007

This photograph was taken in July on the Galapagos Islands (Bartolome, to be exact) off of the coast of Ecuador. Three of my girlfriends and I spent four days touring these islands. I was amazed to see the brilliant colors of these Galapagos crabs sprinkle the black lava terrain and beaches. They can't be missed; they are the most colorful creatures! It was as if an artist had taken his paintbrush with this crab as his canvas. It was truly a walking piece of art.
