There's nothing like swimming in the ocean and discovering that you're not alone.
One of the first things I noticed about sea turtles is how placid they seem, although they're clearly aware of you and are not that happy about having you in their space.
It's hard to desceribe what it's like being close to one of these big, peaceful reptiles. It seems ageless, and timeless as it goes on its way reflecting diffused and ripple light patterns in its suspended world.
This turtle has gotten tired of me and flaps away like a bird in slow-mo.
Near the surface.
Up for air.
