The really cool rings about this one is that as I was sitting on the deck of the ship, one landed on my shorts! I was not able to get a picture of that one until we got on to Isla Bartolome to climb that cinder cone. I was so disappointed then, one of my fellow travellers spotted this one resting on the ground and I was able to get the picture.
