Beautiful green sea turtle on a coral reef pinnacle in tropical Indonesia

This timid turtle was a bit wary of my presence at first, so I kept my distance and it quickly realized I was not a threat. I was able to come close while it was feeding on a beautiful coral bommie, and managed to capture the diver in the background. The shallow water and sunshine made for beautiful colors.
