Honu at Liliuokalani


I took this shot of a Honu (endangered Green Sea Turtle) at Liliuokalani Gardens in Hilo – on the Big Island of Hawaii. I was photographing the shoreline, when a kind man stopped to ask if I was looking for turtles. He pointed me towards a shallow inlet, and I walked over to take a look. I didn’t see anything right away, but I decided to change lenses just in case. When I looked up, there she was… just a few feet from me. She didn’t seem worried by my presence – though I stayed quiet and still as I photographed her. What a beauty!
