  2. Great photos! Did you spend 3 or 4 hours taking them?

    • Thanks Neihtn! I spent 4+ hours in total watching her.

    • Thanks so much, sweet Wendy! I think turtles are really cool, they’re so ancient and they have that “proud” and knowing look to them. ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Great stuff! I’m impressed with your patience and the way the photos turned out.
    Any chance of a sequel come hatching time?

    • Thanks so much! ๐Ÿ™‚ Unfortunately there won’t be a sequel, or at least not by me. I was only visiting Vancouver so I won’t be there to see what happens.

  7. We have a resident turtle that looks very much like this one.
    I love watching him!

    • I’m jealous! I’d love to have a turtle too ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. That’s an absolutely amazing sequence! I loved it. You were so fortunate to not only see it but capture it all.

    • Thanks so much, Lyle! This turtle event really made my day! ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. What a wonderful series, Camilla. I don’t think many of us have ever witnessed such an amazing event. I love the fact that you were able to recognize what was going on and were willing to stick with it.

    • Thanks so much, Mike! It really was amazing (and very unexpected!) to see. These turtles live in water and only leave to (a) bask in the sun (usually you see them on logs in the water) or (b) to lay eggs. So if you see one of them on land, you know what’s up! ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Love them! ๐Ÿ™‚

    October 15, 2013 at 12:38 PM

  11. Ooooh, this is precious, Camilla! I love the series and the “007-like” presentation too ๐Ÿ™‚ You did an awesome job at capturing a defining moment in the life of that turtle. Also, kudos to the turtle for her camouflaging skills: after she filled the hole, there is no way to tell where she dug (if it weren’t for your red arrow, of course!) Thank you for sharing – this was great. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Thanks so much, Stefano! Yes, kudos to the turtle, what a job she did! I was impressed. Amazing how these animals just know exactly what to do, and are able to do it all by themselves! It was really nice to see. ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. Just stopping by and see this. Amazing! Thanks for sharing…

    October 15, 2013 at 2:10 PM

  13. I thought that I had commented but I must have commented on a different post because I don’t see mine. So, I’ll comment again. These are great and I really like that you were patient enough to document the entire egg laying process. Very nice photos Calee.

    • Thanks so much, Yvonne! Your other comment is in my previous post. ๐Ÿ™‚ I must admit, it didn’t take much patience to follow the whole process, I was very fascinated and barely noticed the time!

      October 15, 2013 at 4:45 PM

  14. Absolutely wonderful! What a beautiful journey you captured and you did it so well! I love your photos – they really show a story that few people would have had the patience to document. Thank you so much for caring and for sharing. ๐Ÿ™‚
