Loggerhead Turtle hatchlings released

Eve Haverfield, center, points to the last of two loggerhead turtle hatchlings make their way into the Gulf of Mexico Tuesday night at a beach in Bonita Springs.  The two turtles were discovered three days after digging up a hatched nest.   Photos were taken without the use of flash in virtually zero light conditions with special equipment as flash photography can disorient the turtles.   Michel Fortier/Staff
