Turtle on the Rocks by SpicyHamster Turtle on the Rocks by SpicyHamster
Location: Mauni Lani Bay, Big Island, Hawaii

Camera: Fuji FinePix Z4900

This is one of my favorite photos. This particular turtle must have been accustomed to receiving "hand outs" from tourists because he literally pushed himself up onto the lava rocks and tried to eat my camera. Sea turtles, unlike snapping turtles, aren't very fast nor will their bite do you much harm. I really like the blue tint this photo ended up with.

Please Full-view...you might miss something if you don't.

I simply adore this photo. I love turtles and this photo captures it completely. Yet another photo I've found on deviantART that I would just love to paint!
