Today’s Image of the Day comes from the NASA Earth Observatory and features a look at Pinta Island located in northern end of the Galápagos archipelago.
Although Pinta Island makes up less than one percent of the total Galápagos land area, it holds almost one-third of the total native terrestrial plant species.
This image was captured by the Enhanced Thematic Mapper Plus on board the Landsat 7 satellite.
