Sea Turtles and Shark

July 1, 2018


Loggerhead season is currently underway.  These fascinating ocean reptiles hatch on beaches around the world and then undertake long, epic migrations.  Amazingly, the turtles then return to the exact spot where they were born to mate and lay their own eggs.  Scientists have long been baffled by their incredible navigation skills; however, a recent study has demonstrated that these sea turtles rely on the Earth's magnetic field to find their way home since each part of the sea coast has its own unique magnetic marker which they then use as compass for their precise return. 

This week, I also spent time with my shark spotting drone.  During this time of the year, the ocean can be murky,  but if you watch the video closely, you'll be able to see the shark's prey escape a close call. 


After the sea turtle project, I look forward to being in Iceland and connecting with all of you on social media during that landscape photography project.  For daily nature and wildlife photography postings make sure to follow on Instagram.
