Midnight in Melbourne

Melbourne Florida, that is.

The iPhone holds for 3 seconds to catch a wave

Do not disturb. Sea Turtle at work. Laying eggs.

Thank goodness for a zoom and a shutter that stays open a bit to capture the scene click here for some tips to follow during Sea Turtle Nesting Season

We hurried back to the motel so she could have some privacy. I can’t believe we actually saw her.

Hold still! the iPhone says. Shutter open for 3 seconds. It’s hard to hold it still. Wishing I’d brought a mini tripod to hold the phone steady.

How many eggs do sea turtles lay? The number of eggs in a nest, called a clutch, varies by species. In addition, sea turtles may lay more than one clutch during a nesting season. On average, sea turtles lay 110 eggs in a nest, and average between 2 to 8 nests a season.”

  1. Very cool that you actually saw the turtle. We have many nests on the beach on St George Island.

  2. We recently learned that turkey lays around 10 eggs at a time. Sea turtles lay 110 eggs at a time?! And I thought the turkeys had a large family!

Thanks for your visit. It's always good to hear you stopped by.
