Hello World!

Species: Olive Ridley Turtle | Location: Ganjam District, Odisha, India

The photo was taken in Rushikulya this year April when I went as a volunteer to save the olive ridley hatchlings. This one is a tiny baby olive ridley turtle just coming out of the sand. While it was struggling to come out, its position of flipper seemed to me like it's saying "hello" to all of us. I then took the photo as I did not want to miss the moment.
