Hawksbill Turtle Freedive
Bloody Bay Wall
Little Cayman, Cayman Islands BWI

A couple of divers signaled and started to point in my direction. I thought they were pointing at me and I didn’t understand until I looked up. Above me was this Hawksbill and he was headed directly at me. I managed to get out of his way and snap a couple of quick photos.

    What a fabulous experience and you’ve captured this perfectly – such great clarity and light. Not an ‘obvious wide angle’ but it’s great :)

  • Thank you. Yeah, sorry about that, I obviously was overzealous checking those boxes. :-)
