Cutest of the Cute

Flightless Cormorant

I love the Galapagos Islands! Here, life has been so easy for me, diving for fish in the shallow water near the shore, that I've forgotten how to fly. Well, technically, my wings have evolved to fulfill a different purpose. But they are cute, aren't they? Lately though, with all these introduced species around, I'm beginning to feel a little vulnerable. Does anybody know where I can get some cheap flying lessons?
