Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle

Green Sea Turtles are an endangered species but thrive in the rich waters of Hawaii. I was able to visit a beach that had quite a few of them soaking in the sun and eating in the tidal waters. I kept my distance from this resting turtle and observed him patiently for a few hours.
