On Top of the World!

Kiholo Bay, Hawaii

This picture of a Hawaiian green turtle (honu) was taken at the magical Kiholo Bay on the Kohala Coast of the Big Island.
Although basking is unusual for marine turtles, they can be found napping on sandy shores in the Hawaiian islands.
The fellow in this picture seemed very content warming up atop sun-baked pahoe pahoe lava.
These beautiful animals appear rather nonchalant outside their natural water world, but this one was posing like a real star!

other sizes: small medium large original
