The Hawksbill Turtle (Eretmochelys imbricata) is a critically endangered sea turtle .This picture taken on the Great Barrier Reef out of Cairns, Australia. The hawksbill is one of the smaller sea turtles. Head is narrow and has 2 pairs of prefrontal scales (scales in front of its eyes). Jaw is not serrated.The hawksbill's narrow head and jaws shaped like a beak allow it to get food from crevices in coral reefs. They eat sponges, anemones, squid and shrimp.

I used a Nikon D300 in an Aquatica housing with two Sea & Sea YS110 strobes. For this shot I used a Tokina 10-17mm lens.

Camera set to manual mode with these setting:

ISO - 200
Aperture - f-10
Shutter speed - 1-400
