Sally Lightfoot Crab

It’s amusing to me that I have, as of this writing, about 270 blog entries. Of that, this is only my second post about Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands. I guess it’s good that I have so many pictures to pick from, but of all of the images taken over the years, 2,362 were taken in the Galapagos Islands.

You’d think I could have posted more Galapagos Island pictures then averaging just one image a year!

So this brings us to the above picture of a Sally Lightfoot Crab.  They’re all over the Galapagos Islands, and they’re a welcome sight because much of the archipelago is now hardened and centuries-old lava.  Clearly the crabs are bright, so it’s a nice contrast to the darkness of the lava rock.
