Into The Blue

It's always fun photographing sea turtles, they are such peaceful animals. The Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle is listed as endangered by the IUCN, largely due to habitat loss.

update 1-13-12: This image won 1st place in the Endangered Reptiles and Amphibians contest [link] hosted by :iconendangeredart: and :icondeviantherps:

Camera: Nikon D200 with Ikelite water housing

Check out my underwater video, swimming with turtles and dolphins, filmed entirely with the GoPro HD Hero [link]

I love how sea turtles have such a sour old man look on their face all the time. :D Are you snorkeling/scuba-ing with most of your photos - or maybe you're just great at holding your breath? :)

I'm snorkeling/free diving when I take my shots. I can't hold my breath that long, but long enough to get some good shots.
