Weekly Photo Challenge: Converge

_0055(2)From Fernandina.

Marine iguanas bask on the rocks to raise their body temp after feeding on algae in the cold water.  “Converge” is a good word to describe their behavior because they often huddle in groups to retain heat and face the same direction to align with the sun’s rays.  Thermoregulation is important for these cold-blooded animals.
