    An amazing structure, it looks like a large turtle itself – wonderful photography as usual Norbert

  • The turtle had normal size, but the coral block was large ;-) Thank you!

    Absolutely excellent, Norbert! The great flying turtle ~ perhaps a new Olympic sport? I love this.

  • Thank you very much. Turtles like to fly through sea water. But there are better flyers. May be she is the best in holding here breath.
