Oblivious

What was my favourite part of a two-week vacation on the Big Island in Hawaii? Sea turtles!

This wasn’t a holiday focused on photography but of course I had my camera along and wondered if we would encounter any wildlife. A local photographer told us to head to A-Beach (shortened dramatically to assist with an unpronounceable long name) and we would find sea turtles at sunset. He was right. I was excited to find them sleeping on the beach and swimming near the shore.

It was amazing to walk along nearly deserted beaches a couple of hours before sunset and look for these beautiful creatures. If you found one on the beach it was easy to photograph since they weren’t going anywhere fast. But in the water it was difficult to keep up as they were surprisingly quick.

I was happy to find this turtle whose body was mostly exposed between waves. I’m not sure what turtles eat but that long neck was reaching for something and I thot the whole effect was rather humorous.
