I stayed away from VHS video cameras. They were big, they required a lot of toting and setup, and after seeing what people did with them, I didn’t have any interest. Really, are those proud parents sitting around tonight saying, “Wow, let’s break out that old VCR and watch Susie’s third grade piano solo from 1989!”
Technology marches on, though, and there is a fairly high quality video mode in the Canon SX130 I used to take all the pictures I imposed on you the last few days. I don’t usually think of using it, and probably should have done more with it than I did, but it occurred to me to try it on one of the little turtles as it entered the surf.
So here’s a minute and half of turtle determination, taken last Tuesday, September 13th, 2011, in Huntington Beach State Park. Watching those turtles make their way to the ocean is one of the coolest nature events I’ve ever personally witnessed.
