    A lucky morning! (...of birds and Sea turtles...)

    Dear fellows, this morning I woke up early and headed to a beach closeby, aiming to shoot some birds. I did get some, but what surprised me most was a group of sea turtles that started to show off very close to the rock I was standing at. They just show the head for about 1 to 2 seconds and dive again, so it is quite tricky to get them! Well, this was a very nice morning to me, and I am happy that the turtle preservation initiatives (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Projeto_TAMAR) are really working fine.
    C&C welcomed. Thanks for viewing.

    Nice morning outing indeed! Bunch of great shots, sharp BIF, gull especially nice... I guess I like Ms./Mr. Turtle's somewhat disapproving perusal (#6) - were you littering or something?

    Otavio,
    I greatly appreciated your photos, especially the seagull.
    What is the approximate size of sea turtles?
    Antonio.

    I really like the turtles, not something i get a chance to see. Thanks for sharring Otavio. The cormorant is nicely framed and an unusual angle. I like that one as well.

    Thank you very much, Antônio.

    What is the approximate size of sea turtles?
    They were big. I would estimate in 80cm lenght and 40cm wide.

    Thanks for viewing!

    Excellent shots Otavio.

    Just look at the teeth in the last one. These guys can give a pretty nasty bite.

    Hello, Bobo.

    Excellent shots Otavio
    Thank you very much!

    They surely can! They were like real pre-historic monsters swiming very close to the rock I was standing at. A pity they barely showed their heads for a couple of seconds before diving again. I took about half an hour to make this shots!

    Thanks for viewing!
