If you're lucky enough to have ever seen a sea turtle nest hatch, you know that it's one of the most magical, unique experiences you can have with Mother Nature.
This natural phenomenon is in full swing in Australia right now, and fortunately, photographer Lauren Bath is making it accessible to the rest of the world with absolutely stunning photography. Could sea turtles be any cuter!?
She traveled to Mon Repos Beach in Queensland, Australia, where several species nest each year from November to March. After about 60 days of incubation, the nests hatch and dozens of baby sea turtles make their way to the ocean. Bath's photos below capture both the nesting and hatching stages of a sea turtle's life cycle.
