Galapagos ISLANDS

birthplace of Darwin’s theory.

The Galápagos Islands are an archipelago of volcanic islands. They are distributed on each side of the equator in the Pacific Ocean, located 906 km west of continental Ecuador. They are known for their large number of endemic species that were studied by Charles Darwin during the second voyage of HMS Beagle. His observations and collections contributed to the inception of Darwin's theory of evolution by means of natural selection.

Photos is the gallery were taken during my four last trips to the island (2010-11-14-16), as a results I got the chance to visit twice the Northern and the Southern part of the Archipelago.
