Green sea turtle, Chelonia mydas
This green sea turtle (Chelonia mydas) appears to be giving me a
one-flipper salute. Hmmm. well, anyway one of the odd habits of turtles is that
the seem to see nothing wrong with swimming so close to something that they
whack it with their flippers. True to form, I got a bonk on the head about a
half second after this shot was taken.
