Loggerhead turtle. Bit hard to take a pic of a large subject when you have a 60mm Macro lens on.

This Loggerhead actually came down and tried to bite my camera.

Most turtles I come across dont mind their picture taken. I guess it comes down to how you are in the water with them too. I take my time and approach slowly and most times find they dont mind you near. Sometimes they just dont want a bar of you.

Yes, not as common in the Western Caribbean and Gulf. Maybe more off the West Coast and more common to Hawaii. I believe fairly common Florida and Southern East Coast seasonally.

There is a small cleaning station where the green turtles go everyday to get cleaned. Normally I find two or three hanging around in just one spot at about 12m. We get alot of small to half grown green turtles but no full sized adults. We have several adult Loggerheads and couple of uncommon hawksbill turtles.

There is a dive site off Brisbane, Queensland called Flinders Reef and its very mich like a reef which you get on the GBR which is 1000 miles further north. This site had so many adult Green Turtles that it must be like breeding site or something. I saw at one spot 12 adult Green Turtles in about 5m just floating there getting cleaned. You could just float up there with them and take their photo.

Thanks CompuDude, that will be very useful! I've always wondered how to tell them apart.

I normally tell by looking at the head of the animal. Hawksbill naturally have a bill like hawk.

Aussie, what is that red object under it's right fin???

Someone tag the turtles a few years ago for research. Over the years the metal tags get a little bit of growth on them. If you look closely there is one tag on each flipper.

I dont like the idea of tagging something for research which was only done for 6 months and then leave the tags on for years afterwards. Its a bit on the cruel side I think.

I am using a Nikon D80 in an Ikelite housing. Most of my Turtle shots are taken with a Tokina 10-17mm lens.

The Green Turtles around home are on the small size (not adult) with shell length from 1 foot to 2-3 foot. The Loggerhead would have a length around the 4-5 foot. I have only seen one Leatherback and it was huge with shell length I would guess 6 foot. The Hawkbills length would be 2-3 foot.

I think it looks worse than it feels Compudude as they normally rub off anything that annoys them. I have even had them rub up against me to get rid of growth.

Considering the crazy biological superglue that barnacles use to cement themselves on, though, that's going to HURT, coming off of an eye instead of external hard shell...

hey guys hope you don't mind me asking a question.... Do you guys use a flash when taking pictures of these turtles? If so, does it ever bother them or agitate them? I want to get into underwater photography just need to get my housing for my camera and then after that big hurdle get a strobe... :)

I use flashes on pretty much every picture. I might dial them back to say 1/2 or even 1/8th power, but it's rare that I'll turn them off completely if I want to bring color out. With the turtle shots I have had a chance to shoot, I didn't notice any agitation at all from the turtles. In fact one just allowed me to swim parallel to him about 2 feet away for a few hundred yards.

* fantastic pics lj82 especialy the one reflecting of the surface..just beautiful.
* hi scubamommie....i find turtles and bigger fish never seen to have any reaction to the flash... i find maller fish on some occasions are a little startled but nothing much to speak of . My son takes great snaps down to 6 -10ft with out a strobe and good close shots (with in 6")in deep water by just using the inbiult camera flash but a strobe is definitely the way to go. Taking pics adds a new dimention to diving and snorkeling & is such great fun .

I like this shot too because of the reflection, but the shot would have been better had I focus more on the turtle's face.

I was just kidding you, I am more than happy to get my own refills but you are buying your own popcorn......


Depth of field (DOF) is a term which refers to the areas of the photograph both in front and behind the main focus point which remain "sharp" (in focus). Depth of field is affected by the aperture (http://www.dpreview.com/learn/key=aperture), subject distance, focal length (http://www.dpreview.com/learn/key=focal+length), and film or sensor format.
A larger aperture (http://www.dpreview.com/learn/key=aperture) (smaller f-number, e.g. f/2) has a shallow depth of field. Anything behind or in front of the main focus point will appear blurred. A smaller aperture (larger f-number, e.g. f/11) has a greater depth of field. Objects within a certain range behind or in front of the main focus point will also appear sharp.


http://www.dpreview.com/Learn/Articles/Glossary/Optical/images/dof_example_small.jpg (http://www.dpreview.com/Learn/Articles/Glossary/Optical/images/dof_example.jpg)
As you can see, at a large aperture of f/2.4 only the first card is in focus, while at f/8 the middle card is sharp and the distant card is almost sharp.

The first shot is from Puerto Galera in June 2008. I only saw a few turtles there and this was the only one I got photos of. Ironically on my last dive of my trip :)

The rest are from Moalboal taken in November 2007. In Moalboal, I saw turtles on almost every dive :)

Is this a hawksbill? I still have a hard time distinguishing hawksbill and green sea. Here's what I found about hawksbill:

"The turtle's shell, or carapace (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carapace#Turtles_and_tortoises), has an amber background patterned with an irregular combination of light and dark streaks, with predominantly black and mottled brown colors radiating to the sides.[5] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hawksbill_turtle#cite_note-ARKive-4)
The hawksbill turtle has several characteristics that distinguish it from other, closely related species. Its elongated, tapered head ends in a beak (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beak)-like mouth (from which its common name is derived), its beak more sharply pronounced and hooked than other sea turtles. The hawksbill's arms have two visible claws on each flipper.
One of the hawksbill's more-easily distinguished characteristics is the pattern of the thick scutes (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scutes) that make up its carapace. While its carapace has five central scutes and four pairs of lateral (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anatomical_terms_of_location#Relative_directions) scutes like several members of the same family, E. imbricata's posterior (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anatomical_terms_of_location#Directions:_human_ana tomy) scutes overlap in such a way as to give the rear margin of its carapace a serrated (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serration) look, similar to the edge of a saw or a steak knife. The turtle's carapace itself has been known to reach almost a meter in length.[6] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hawksbill_turtle#cite_note-MarineBio-5)"

Hawksbill turtle - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hawksbill_turtle)

I like this thread. Thanks for the beautiful photos.

Had an interesting dive last week with a pair of Loggerheads. It looked like a bit of a Domestic as the female wasn't too happy with the male of the species. Maybe too many late nights coming home from the Byron Beach Hotel ;-)
I havnt seen this type of action before and it was an experience to witness. All my shots are at 10mm which means I was basically right next to them.
I think the film strip sequence is the best way to show the experience

The water color/variation is terrific, even without
the perfect turtle silhouette. (covet, covet)!

Snapped this Green Turtle while diving on the marvelous Yongala Wreck near Townsville nth Qld. 4,500 divers dived this site last year and its so good to have tame marine creatures for photghraghy.

Another, the water had a strange, milky cast and a lot of sediment kicked up by the current that was very difficult to deal with and without the fisheye lens photographs of any quality would have been very challenging:

I think that the turtles may have been mislabeled.

I tend to shy away from photos with people in them, but the second shot has a lot of mystery to it. I like it.

Here is a shot of a Loggerhead, first time I have captured one of these.

This guy was big and wanted to take a nap, I snapped a few quick shots and let him be. It was hard to get his face lit properly due to him being tucked under the coral.
