Gary has drawn this juvenile Green turtle after attributing it to teaching him to snorkel! He says that it was so curious of this nervous swimmer that it came under him and nestled under his chest. He was so mesmerised he forgot to be frightened of snorkelling. Since this encounter on the Great Barrier reef he has since snorkelled with humpback whales, sharks, other turtles, sealions and other magnificent in many parts of the world. Thanks to this little turtle.
