Runway overview. One hour before sunset some of the worlds biggest tortoise are grassing on the runway. Only one Twin Otter each day lands on this runway at 2:45 pm. At this time the runway is free of these animals, because they are looking for shadow inside the small forest nearby the runway.

Well done - nice to have a safe inteface between nature and man/aircraft.

I was going to write something about this being a photo of the postal service...but I didn't.

Shouldn't he have an amber strobe light mounted on his shell while he's doing field maintenance? All of our mowing machines do!

I imagine that Twin Otter would be in a holding pattern for a LONG time waiting for the wildlife to clear the runway! Great shot.

At first I thought it was some kind of radar or instrument! Perhaps, is it a passenger or an employee of the airport? In any case it doesn't seem to be in a hurry!
