Shhh, I'm Resting.

As I was snorkeling I came upon this juvenile green sea turtle resting in the coral. The turtle opened his eyes a tiny bit, looked at me and then went back to sleep. The faces of green sea turtles have always made me smile because they frequently have a "grumpy" look no matter what.
