Visiting Isla Isabela in the Galápagos Archipelago

Beach Walk (continued)

Here are more pictures from my beach walk; the story continues on the next page.

Ropy-looking folds in the surface of an old lava flow on the beach. The folds were about an inch or two thick.   Close-up of a feather.

These two pictures are patterns on the surface of the beach sand. The left-hand patterns were made by the surf washing up on the beach; the right-hand patterns I think were made by ghost crabs. For both pictures, I have boosted the contrast to make the patterns more visible.

A close-up of minnows in a shallow tide pool.   If you spook the minnows they dart around frantically, stirring up the tide pool.
