Greysby can be skittish creatures at best.  But this one held still for me to take a shot of him rather close up (I had a macro lens on, so close was my only option.)

On my last day of diving, I was set up for macro.  100+ feet away I saw a turtle who looked right at me and began swimming toward me.  I waited and hoped I could at least manage a shot of his head.  I was lucky, the only shot I  got was this one.

I saw these and thought that they would make a lovely photo, with the movement in the surge area they were growing in.
