Snorkeling or scuba diving with sea turtles is one of the must do things here in Maui. Protected status has given these Hawaiian green sea turtles a chance to recover in numbers and now they can be found at most dive and snorkel sites.
They have become one of my favorite photography subjects. Some seem to be easier to work with than others, just like human models. But when you find the right turtle who doesn't mind showing off a bit the results can be quite amazing. Add some colorful reef and clear water and you have a recipe for some nice fine art sea turtle images.
