Gentle Giant

By ChazB      
A wild giant tortoise taken in the highlands of Santa Cruz island in the Galápagos. Even though we were there in September during the dry (garua) season, the clouds still concentrate in the centres of the hilly islands where the former volcanoes haven't yet collapsed under their own weight, meaning that it is usually drizzly and the vegetation stays green. The tortoises migrate up to the highlands to breed.

Thanks for all the comments on my last upload of the blue-footed booby!
