First Flight


Two critically endangered Hawksbill Turtles take their first few strokes in the ocean, minutes after hatching. Their struggle will be long and tiresome and the odds of survival are sadly stacked against them. A slow shutter speed used with a flash enabled me to capture the amazing ambient light of the setting sun. Lissenung Island – Papua New Guinea.
