Weekly Photo Challenge: Spring!

 

Ecuador flowerFrom highlands around Quito, Ecuador.

We visited Ecuador and the Galápagos in late May.   But these regions have unusual climates, because despite being on the Equator, Ecuador is very mountainous and the Galápagos are fed by the Antarctic waters of the Humboldt current.  The Humboldt is a prime reason the volcanic islands are able to support so much life.

The end of May is the end of the “wet season,” so there were plenty of things blooming and plenty of wildlife to be seen.
