Daily Dozen — Photos -- National Geographic Your Shot baby turtle wave back to the ocean
Loggerhead hatchlings can emerge from their nests in a variety of different colors. I've seen plenty of black, brown, white and tan hatchlings but this particular turtle was born with a vibrant orange color that I had never seen before. Lucky for me, the sand was soft enough for the turtle to leave its tracks as it hustled to the ocean to make the photos composition more interesting. I was able to capture the moment just before a wave surged in and welcomed the vibrant beauty to the sea.
