My husband and I went to Costa Rica over the last week. Here are a few pictures to bring you with us! Click to enlarge. Click again for full size.

We even saw a giant Green Pacific Sea Turtle laying her eggs. They’re protected and you can’t startle them while they’re figuring out where to nest, cleaning the space, or digging the hole, but once a female begins to lay, she goes into a trance. While she’s laying, she is oblivious and you can close in and get some video. Which, of course, I did. The infrared is what we had on and you can see her shell on the left side where that is. Once she started laying, the guides dropped in a white light that we could use to get the egg part.
