The secret to successful wildlife photography: Find friendly wildlife

When you visit the Galapagos Islands (and don't you dare die before doing so), there are very strict rules. You can't stay onshore overnight, except in two or three towns, so you sleep on a boat. You must be accompanied by a licensed guide whenever on shore. You can't bring any food on shore, and have to guard your water bottle from birds. And you can't touch the animals. But what do you do when you sit down for a break and three baby seals try to crawl into your lap and smooch? Amazing, amazing place. (Though it just occurred to me that they're probably not looking for a kiss, but rather are hoping that Jodi will regurgitate a fish)
