Dozens of turtles were making their way from the wetland to the cinder path. It was egg laying season without the benefit of a midwife. We passed a hundred mounds of cinder and sand where turtles had deposited eggs. Whenever one of us approached the turtles, they reposition themselves to be face-to-face. I could only imagine them saying, “Don’t mess with me or mine.”

Midwife needed…
Reproduction, the purpose of nature.
Stare down.
