Weekly Photo Challenge: Boundaries

From Fernandina.

Just because some boundaries are invisible doesn’t make them any less real.  This sign asks Galápagos visitors to stop and not go any further so as not to disturb the nesting site of these flightless cormorants (Phalacrocorax harrisi).

These birds are unique to the Galápagos and are classified as Vulnerable by the IUCN.  This is still plenty close enough to get a great view of these fascinating birds and the chicks in their seaweed nests.
