Kemp's ridley release!

We had a great group of folks assisting in the release of nearly 80 Kemp's ridley hatchlings at Opal Beach today. I was working on a more complete posting, but when I saw how adorable some of them look close up, I just couldn't wait to share the initial photos with you.

{{{"Don't get between me and the water, lady!"}}}

I promise, I didn't get in his/her way. It turned toward me and paused for a close-up! I swear! Please click on the photo to see an enlargement of this adorable little turtle.

Stay tuned for more photos from this morning. In the meantime, click HERE for much more information about Kemp's ridley turtles.
