The story:  Green Turtles, just like myself, are regular visitors to Moore Reef, on the Great Barrier Reef, out of Cairns. The site is regularly visited by snorkelers and divers and the Turtles have become unconcerned about the regular human presence and some have become relatively friendly. I visited this dive site, along with my model in the hopes of getting so images pf human and turtle interaction. This particular turtle was extremely friendly and very inquisitive and had made a few passes at us. I managed to capture the turtle’s reflection in the divers mask in one such close pass. It is quite rare for Green Turtles to be so inquisitive.

Location:  Great Barrier Reef, Queensland, Australia

Camera:  Nikon D200 camera and Sigma 10-20mm with Sea and Sea Housing and Dual Sea & Sea YS-250 Strobes
