The Turtle Twist

Green sea turtle

Chelonia mydas

As the sun sets over the lagoon, a green sea turtle gracefully glides through the crystal-clear water on the Great Barrier Reef. There is a real sense of peace and calm below the water’s surface, which contrasts with the raw, windy and wild conditions above.
