"Little Big Logger"
By far the youngest Loggerhead I have encountered. Still by no means is this a small turtle. Its shell was still roughly 3ft. in length.

No Photoshop. One of the MOST incredible days ever on Grand Cayman. I exposed so the white sand slightly overexposed the image. I pressed down onto the sand looking up so the pink of the conch reflected on the surface with the bright blue sky.

"Permit Pack"
A very rare sighting for me here in Cayman. This is by far the biggest school of Permit I have encountered. After this initial shot, they swirled around me 3 times at rapid speed and then disappeared into the blue.
