Photos of the Week, April 8, 2022

Lindblad Expeditions closes the book on our inaugural Bahamas season this week, but we're returning to the Pacific Northwest, where a damp but verdant spring awaits our guests, as well as the Amazon, where fascinating wildlife can be found at every turn. And, of course, we're exploring the Galápagos year-round. More destinations to come!

blue footed booby feet

Blue-footed boobies lift their feet in slow motion during courtship. Both males and females get their bright blue feet from the sardines they eat. Therefore, bright blue feet are indicators of good health, which boobies display to attract mates. —Gianna Haro, Naturalist (Photo by Christian Saa)

Today we planned on an early pre-breakfast outing, but we had to wait out the rain onboard the ship. On the riverbank, we spotted an iguana right next to the ship. It was the perfect opportunity for pictures. —Ramiro Adrian, Naturalist
