Most of the time, wildlife is wary of humans (and for good reason!). But in a few special locations, animals are lucky enough to live where humans won't harm them. The Galapagos is one of these locations, which is great news for wildlife watchers and photographers wanting to be closer to animals. The photographer writes, "In the Galapagos, the wildlife is so unconcerned about human activity that with a little patience you can concentrate on composing the background. I quietly followed this heron until I captured "our" boat behind him."
