Sonia Elias Reyes captures a rare photo of an elusive Key Biscayne sojourner.
Momma Loggerhead is seen at approximately 6am on a recent morning heading back to sea after laying her eggs and burying them on the beach. The phenomenon usually happens late at night so it is atypical for her to be departing at dawn.
