Turtles, turtles, and more turtles

Yes, Gen, I was able to get so close that when she was flipping sand back over her nest it got all over me! I was standing all of about 4 feet from her while she did her thing...it was cool, will chat about it more later, but thought I'd answer that question. Here is the link so you can see where we went, stayed, and what we saw. Mon Repos Rookery. More Facts. Enjoy!

Trying once again to post a comment (beta-blogger doesn't apparently want comments from me)... What a great pic! She looks huge & like she is sticking her tongue out at you.

(I had to switch to beta blogger to be able to comment - been trying several times, believe me!)

The turtle is beautiful! Amazing how ancient they look, so similar to the 65 million year-old fossils of Archelon. Only smaller!
