Isla Plaza Sur

Isla Plaza Sur (South Plaza Island), a small island off the coast of Santa Cruz, was our first stop on Saturday.

Plaza Sur is known for birds, ice plant, prickly pear cactus, and land iguanas.

I have to say, I was not expecting to see so much cactus (or really any cactus) on this trip.

Female Land Iguana. You can tell she’s a she because she’s so dark in color. We just missed the mating season, so the males weren’t all that colorful either, but you can still tell the difference between the sexes pretty easily.
