'Striker’ has been one of the most commented prints in the gallery since its introduction - a true crowd favourite I must say!
And there is something about this turtle that gets everyone's attention...I think it's his striking shell. But what do you think?
This turtle was around 1 metre in length from top to tail. He swam with me for a good 10 minutes or so, weaving left and right at a slow forward pace, giving me confidence he was very much at ease with my presence.
Have you had the pleasure of snorkelling or diving with turtles before? When swimming with these gentle reptiles, or any marine life, it’s important to give them space, let them know you’re not a threat and certainly don’t cast a shadow over their space.
We don’t touch them and we don’t block their path. And by swimming in harmony with these wonderful Chelonian creatures, I put myself in a position to capture such beautiful images. 😉
I love how the turtle is separated from the reef and his shell speaks to everyone differently.
We think this shot is just perfect!
