Hello Samalai, and welcome to TN.
I see you joined back in September, but this is your first post. This is the first turtle laying photo I can remember seeing here. Although it doesn't show it depositing any eggs, it is on it's journey to the beach where it digs a nest out of the sand, and then lays them. I have only seen shows on the National Geographic Channel of this amazing event. Looks like it is a pretty big turtle at that.
The only negative thing I see is I wish the image was larger, you are allowed to post at maximum 800 pixels. Also the date is a little distracting. Hope to see more fine photos from you in the future.
really great capture! tfs.
Nice moment to capture. I would like to see that animal from much closer. Anyways its a rare capture.
