They are not afraid of people and sometimes can be a little curious about you. This one was just hungry but it was fun to watch it eat the grasses that grow on the lava rocks and then surface for a second to catch a breath of fresh air and then head back down for more yummy algae!
This next shot I dove down closer to the turtle because I noticed what I think is some type of a wrasse fish hanging out underneath the turtle, maybe he was looking for sloppy seconds?
Darby had already swum back to shore so I made sure to take lots of pictures hoping to get a few nice shots for her to view later. I can't wait to get home and work on the digital imaging of them all. I hope that you all can experience a little bit through the captured lens! Next time you are all invited to join us right!
