Photo:@stevewinterphoto A baby American crocodile hatches on a beach in Cuba. At the time I took this picture this beach was the location of the only arribada (mass nesting) of American crocodiles in the world. Memories from Cuba keep coming back to me in light of President Obama’s recent statement about normalizing relations between the US and Cuba, and I can’t help but wonder what these “normalized relations” mean for the fate of Cuba’s fairly unscathed ecology. The photos I shot there, including the photo seen here, were featured in the November 2003 issue of National Geographic in a story called Cuba Naturally. You can see more photos from that story and buy prints on my website, under the Prints and Posters link. @NatGeo @ThePhotoSociety #Cuba #ecology #travel #Arribada #Caribbean #SteveWinterPhoto #onassignment #procamera #filmdays #Cuba #Americancrocodile #beach #hatch #reptile #crocodile
