tortoise underwater

Whilst floating in a gentle protected bay with my camera I noticed a Sea turtle settled on the ocean floor, roughly 10 meters down. I calmed my breathing and took a large breath, and began to kick down towards him. I made sure to reach the ocean floor well away from the Turtle itself and then slowly approach, so it could swim away if it wanted to and didn't feel pinned down. I managed to snap off a couple of photos before my screaming lungs forced me to head for the surface. I love these small moments with wildlife and always wonder what they think of our meetings.
