Quito, Hummers, Galapagos, and BAA Bulletin 330

[Not a valid template]
This was one of the very first images that I created in the Galapagos on my maiden cruise in 2005. Canon 70-200 f/2.8L IS lens handheld at 145mm with the EOS-1D MII. ISO 800. Evaluative metering +2/3 stop: 1/100 sec. at f/8.

I am posting from the loverly Hilton Quito Colon awaiting the arrival of the rest of the group. Many, including my co-leader Denise Ippolito, are on a flight from Miami that is supposed to land at 7:40pm tonight. Fingers crossed. Tomorrow five of the group is taking a full day tour of Quito and seven of us are headed to Tandayapa Bird Lodge to photograph perched hummingbirds. Tuesday morning we fly to Baltra and board the yacht Beagle for two wonderful weeks cruising the archipelago, photographing, and snorkeling.

Alas, AA Flight 931 is delayed…. But only about one hour đŸ™‚
