This image is called Old Man Wisdom. I created it at a dive site called Five Caves in Makena Maui. having just taken a breath of air this turtle was swimming over the reef looking for a cleaning station to hang out at for a while.
I positioned myself just a bit lower than the turtle so it could swim over me or veer of to the direction of its choice. As I hovered motionless the turtle finally decided to go right over my right side. Taking the photograph from a lower point of view allowed me to include the reef in the background.
