Somebody has to work on Christmas so, as long as Im here today, I really appreciate getting to look at beautiful pictures like this one. I love the simplicity of the image, its textures and the grand sense of scale (tiny turtle vs. vast ocean) that the composition lends.
A baby sea turtle makes its way into the Pacific Ocean at Malena beach, some 285 km. southwest of Panama City, Wednesday, Nov. 6, 2006. The 120 inhabitants of the village Malena participate in a project to protect the safe birth of sea turtles in the area.
