Was fortunate to see what I think is a Ridley turtle nesting this past weekend. Had my camera with me so I took as many shots as I could. Did not edit them in any way yet but will probably work on some later. This is my first post here so I hope they have some good qualities.I hope to continue getting better so I can continue to contribute. Here are some of my favorites:

Great to see a nesting Kemp's ridley sea turtle on this forum, and nice pictures - the first one with the sand flying is a good action shot. You're lucky, few people get to see this. Looks like this was at South Padre Island.
