That shot looks awesome funky. Wish I could see a bigger version of it, but the pano probably wouldn't work here.

Thanks! That was a big system coming in off the DE bay on Wednesday night. Looked like it was going to stay behind us at first then changed directions. Got ugly quick. I had to shrink it down to like 25% to fit on here.

Meet Nemo, a recently hatched loggerhead turtle on beach last week. This was shot after sunrise and he was only one of two that I saw, their siblings having marched to sea hours earlier. Frames lifted from iPhone video that was not really in focus. 

 

It is unlikely that this little guy made the cut after I bid him farewell. You can’t really tell from stills but his right front flipper was not working well which was likely a birth defect. That could have made digging out of the nest much more difficult which explains his late hour emergence. 

 

I kept a couple of egrets from making Nemo breakfast but that was all the help I could give it. Laws prevent intervention. 

 

Pretty cool as this was the first emerging turtle I have seen down here. This year was a record with over 20,000 nests counted over a 9 mile stretch of beach

That month blew by without the camera leaving the cabinet.  Hard to believe that it is almost Labor Day... seems like it was Memorial Day two weeks ago.

Shallow-buried turtle eggs can be unearthed before they are ready when the waves run higher than normal.
