Solomon.....


Winter water here on Oahus North shore has underwater visibility of "hand in front of your face". Big waves on the outter reefs, stir up the summers silt on the inner reefs, carrying it eventually out to sea... Its Mother Natures way of cleaning house. Currents are strong so yesterday Friday November 9,2012 i was trying to take a picture of this beautiful serene turtle u see here in the first shot... a friend he was being very patient....

All of a sudden, out of the midst of the silt,a turtle, i dubbed Solomon drops in next to me... like a helicopter landing, he surprised me... Every once in a while you meet a turtle like this... a little wise guy, full of personality. Since being too close to these guys is a NO NO, i turned and moved away.

Well, Solomon wasn't having it.... it was his time for the camera... u see him here in the third shot,he is the turtle in the back, swimming full throttle around the rock i had just moved away from...

What he does next is extraordinary, he pushes the turtle in front of him and me away and SETS HIMSELF UP IN THE NEXT SHOT!! That's him in the last shot... LOLOLOL.. What a little character.... Solomon...









 I am, a nothing about the ocean surprises me, island gal...

One day you should tell us all your secret of how you communicate with animals and get them to trust you like this. It must be your gentle and unthreatening nature.
