The number of times that Lindblad field staff use the word "unusual" in any given week is a little astonishing, but this week, the word got a workout that was, well, unusual itself.  In the Galapagos Islands, the rainy season has provided a green backdrop that allows for striking wildlife photos. It's also created an abundance of food, which means that species like land iguanas and giant tortoises are on the move and seeking snacks. Along the Columbia River, early wildflowers are providing a pop of color in a landscape that's just beginning to turn green. And in the Peruvian Amazon, there are so many animal species that nearly every day yields an uncommon monkey or frog sighting!
