The photographer: Carol Alexander, Citrus Heights Behind the lens: My husband, Max Alexander, and I were being transported in a small boat with eight other people from a catamaran on a trip with Overseas Adventure Travels to an island in the Galapagos. A young bird we believe was trying out its wings and got tired, landed on my husband’s head and stayed there for about 15 minutes until we were almost on land, then flew onto the island. People in other boats were so amazed they were coming over and taking pictures because it was so funny. The bird didn’t seem to be afraid, and grabbed hold of my husband’s hair to keep his balance.
