Wee One

It's a banner year for turtles---the trails are lined with nests that have hatched as evidenced by the remnants of eggs left behind.

Here's one tiny turtle, newly hatched, that I discovered sunning himself in the middle of one trail. No bigger than a half dollar, he didn't have the fear that older turtles have. I moved him to another area---the park service uses the trail as a road and I was worried that he would be hit.
