This was the first sea turtle we saw on our vacation. I didn’t even notice him asleep on the rocks until some guy pointed him out to me. They camouflage very well. We never saw one actually end up on the rocks like that, but they remain sleeping in the sun until the tide comes in so that they can leave again without too much effort. And, watching them, it is a LOT of effort it takes for them to move around out of the water.
If you enjoy my photographs please consider making a purchase. All of the proceeds from the sale will go directly to help support our friends volunteering at the Seed of Hope in South Africa which is a great organization really making a difference in the community. Every little bit makes a difference, even a small digital download for your desktop!
