Turtle Beach, Florida at sunset – minus the turtles. I took this photo last November, which was past turtle season. Turtle season in Florida runs from May through October (laying through hatching.) If you’re going to photograph the turtles, give them plenty of space and avoid shining lights on them (including camera flashes.) If you disturb the turtle it may hurry back to the water and leave it’s eggs there…. which means no baby turtles.
