Sea Turtle Excursion.

Late September our family was
fortunate to be selected to go on an
excavation of a Sea Turtle nest 5 days
after the little ones had left the nest. 
The purpose was to monitor how many 
hatched and unhatched eggs were 
in the nest,as well as to free any hatch ling
stragglers there might. Some of them get
hung up in the soft shells and must be freed.

Some time the dig can get all the way up to the Shoulder.
It must be dug by hand, feeling to prevent injury to the stragglers.
The hatching's are a little larger than a quarter.
Above and below, trapped in the shell, and need assistance.

The hatched eggs are counted,as well as the unhatched, and
stragglers that are released. Careful records are kept.
There were 18 nests on Tybee Island this year,the 
record number is around 23. 
Below placed in a bucket where they will be released 

 to the ocean when count is finished.
Below there was a lecture before the dig and
5 month old grandson was mesmerized.
We're going to let them go

Below is Ike now in the Ocean some where off the Florida coast.
Thanks to the Tybee island Marine Science Center.

My Wife's Plant.

I don't know the name of this
plant. Mad snapper offered Sedum.
Sooo What say you ?

                   Perhaps the plant will  
                 mutate into a man eater!!

They Live in My Truck !

They live in my truck, and 
Ride perched on my Knee.
 While driving I noticed a juvenile stick bug perched on my Knee.
I didn't have my camera, so when I got home I coaxed it on my
finger, took it inside and carefully placed it on the kitchen table
where I shot the first photo, then several more. It was a beautiful bright green color.  
 So why not take it outside and place it on a Sunflower, for 
more photos. The bug was only 1-1/4" long, so I did
a Pic Monkey job on the photos. 

There's no telling what kind of insects live in my truck.

Developing Sunflower.

Sunflower in growing stages.

The stalk, or stem, on this one is not 
as sturdy looking as the one in the
previous post. I hope it holds up so
I can get more photos.

Above photo shows the flower beginning
to unfold.
