    The green sea turtle of Hawaii comes up for air - twice in 10 minutes.....

    I'm not sure which one I prefer but I was happy when he/she finally came up for air again. I could finally stop laying on the lava waiting.

    For those interested: PX125 pushed to 500. 90mm macro lense on Olympus OM-4.

    Thanks for the positive feedback everyone. You are all swaying me to #1....

    No color version unfortunately as they were taken on b/w film.

    very neat shots...the first is really good with the water ripples and the light reflecting off the water. compositionally it just seems to work better for me. something about the position of the head out of the water is more pleasing.
