The story behind this shot, i was edging closer and closer to this turtle to try and get a good close up while using a 10mm wide angle lens. I didnt realise how close i was to the feeding turtle, Danny my dive buddy said he moved in behind the turtle in the chance that he would get a picture of the turtle attacking me, it was only when i heard a hissing sound i looked up from the view finder and saw how close i was. I backed away and the turtle just kept on feeding on the sea grass.
Taken at Abu Dabbab, Egypt.
