Week 6 – Judy


Week 06

Nest Building

We had another Soft Shell Turtle lay her eggs in our front yard. I watched her laboriously dig her nest. It’s surprising how high and how far she could fling the sand while digging her nest. You couldn’t even tell where the nest was once she finished laying and covering the nest.

My settings were ISO 400, f/6.3, 1/2000 sec, at 300mm (70-300mm). Did some cropping.

    Too cool!! Love it!! What a fantastic moment captured! She must have super powers to fling the dirt that far! I love the stop action and detail. Tells the story very well! You even have dark background areas to bring out the flying dirt! Well done!!
