On April 23, 2007, I was invited to a certain beach to witness a rare sight. I arrived in time to see this huge green sea turtle making her way out to sea after laying her eggs on the beach. I watched as the Fish & Wild Life staff tagged her and was impressed with the professionalism they exhibited in conducting their duties.Last evening, I had the privilege of returning to witness a spectacular sight -- the hatched baby turtles pictured above and below -- instinctively making their way down to the sea to begin their life's journey. I missed most of the turtles as they made their escape to the sea, but I was lucky to catch sight of these little ones before they disappeared into the water.
It was exciting to see these little guys leave their nest, but I couldn't help thinking how many of them will actually survive into adulthood.
This is the last guy I nicknamed "Beautify." Have a safe journey! Hope to see you when you grow up. To learn more, click here to check out this excellent post by Angelo Villagomez.
Okay, that's the best I could do with that moon shot. :)
