George strides with his 70 year old gait through his harem of females, some of whom he´d had his way with just this very morning. We know this because the act had been carefully logged by The W

Really enjoyed this - some amazing pics!!
Let's hope George was succesful with the ladies so his breed doesn't die out
Great story & stunning photos, once in a lifetime !!
Great opening line. You must have had all senior readers heart's pacing! Well written and excellent photos - really liked dancing blue foot and the seals watching the gull. And I was amazed at the photo of your group - I learned something new of the Galapagos. I always thought I was far too young to yet afford a trip there but methinks few of that group started their wanderings in the mid-80's!! Oh, I envy the younger traveller of today.....
This is a really great experience. I think it's really representative, written well and I love all the photos!
really interesting piece and some lovely pictures, particularly that awesome crab! doubt i'd argue with it... it was also really nice that you took a picture of george (or one of his neighbours) with people in it. a wildlife shot without some form of scale is really hard when it comes to working out, just how big is "big".
Having just returned from a very similar journey to yours, I really appreciated this one - well done. The latest on the egg situation re: Lonsome George is that they are currently incubating 3 eggs to become male and 5 to become female. I'm sure the expectant father is over the moon!
Good story and stunning pics... thanks
