I Am a Survivor!
by Terry Nuttall (tknterry) 
Camera:
Pentax K10D
Location:
Santa Cruz Island, Galapagos
 
Ecuador

Photographer Notes:
I just returned from the Amazon forest and the Galapagos Islands last week. I used my Pentax K10D and Tamron 28-300 lens for this photo of one of the remaining Gigantic Tortoises which weigh up to 500 pounds each and live up to 150 years. This one I photographed on the island of Santa Cruz.
