Grand Turk Turtle

Turtle broaching for air off of Grand Turk in the Caribbean. We met her on a SCUBA dive at a depth of 50 feet as she fed on a shelf at the edge of a cliff with a 7000 foot drop off. As we came up to the surface at the end of our dive, she followed closely behind to grab a gulp of air. I snapped the pic just as she was heading back down to chow some more.

Location: Grand Turk in the Turks and Caicos Islands, Caribbean Sea
