This is a green sea turtle that I photographed along the south-western coast of Maui. The turtle was in about 30 feet of water along a rocky outcropping. It was about to dive to the bottom after taking a quick breath of air. The water surface was a little rough; all the small air bubbles are from waves braking against the rocks that are just out of sight in the background.

    This is an amazing shot! I've done a fair amount of snorkeling (and swimming near turtles) in the Caribbean and know how fast these beautiful creatures can be when they see us humans.
