15th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
A green turtle (Chelonia mydas) pierces the surface to breath. I was actually visiting a known, wild shark nursery habitat when I stumbled into this little guy. I blinked, and the turtle was gone. On visiting the nursery a few days later to my total surprise this turtle was once again ‘hanging out’ with some 10+ neonatal sharks! With my camera at the ready I waited patiently for the turtle to surface before capturing this shot.
