Tropical nirvana (closeup)

Photo licensing and prints of this image are available at my Photoshelter stock gallery.

Green sea turtles (honu) bask in the tropical sun of Hawaii to rest after gathering food, as they need the heat energy to warm their cold-blooded body.
This peaceful time allows them to recover from long periods in the ocean, gathering limu seaweed.
I captured this sunset image on the Kohala Coast of the Big Island. Their presence, especially on
the Big Island, adds a wonderful sense of peace to our beaches, and significance to this protected species.

Beautiful catch of his expression. So sad looking, as if he is getting over a relationship. V
