Flying With The Hawks'

Category: Spontaneous Moments


Photo and caption by Matthew Feist

We were diving Smith's Cove in Grand Cayman, when a pair of hawksbill turtles came meandering by. My father in the background can be seen video taping one turtle seeking out a new sponge to nibble on, while I followed the larger turtle with my camera. I was swimming along side of it snapping photos, almost completely unaware of my surroundings when suddenly and unexpectedly, my sister came up to get a look and was framed perfectly behind the hawksbill turtle.

Location: Smith's Cove Reef, Georgetown, Grand Cayman, British West Indies
