LOCATION: Red Sea, Egypt
STORY: Moments like this happen once in a lifetime, or shall we say, once in 1000 turtle encounters. This hawksbill turtle (Eretmochelys imbricata), classified as critically endangered, had only one thing on his mind: lunch! He was so hungry, that he completely ignored me for 30+ minutes with my camera practically pressed up against his face! He was crushing that coral like candy!
