Mexico/Michoacan: Colola Beach – More Sea Turtles in the Morning

Waking up before sunrise we went out in the Colola Beach in hope of finding some last-minute struggler sea turtles in good morning light. At first it seemed that we were too late – a lot of tracks but no turtles. And then we found one! She was wrapping up covering up the laid eggs with sand and hiding the nest. For a good half an hour the turtle was diligently hiding the nest, then the sun came up, and the turtle slowly made it toward the ocean and disappeared in the waves.
