A green turtle swimming up for air. Photo taken in the Tobago Cays / Caribbean.
The green sea turtle (Chelonia mydas) is mostly herbivorous. The adults commonly inhabit shallow lagoons, feeding mostly on various species of seagrasses.

Like other sea turtles, they migrate long distances between feeding grounds and hatching beaches. Many islands worldwide are known as Turtle Island due to green sea turtles nesting on their beaches. Females crawl out on beaches, dig nests and lay eggs during the night. Later, hatchlings emerge and walk into the water. Those that reach maturity may live to age 80 in the wild

I am taking pictures and videos since a long time, just as an amateur and for fun. Since I’m living on a boat year around my equipment has to be small and robust – so no big “bodies” and lenses.
I enjoy sharing what I see and experience.
