Default Green Sea Turtles and other things

just when i thought I was beginning to learn how to take a "decent" image - now comes Underwater Photography!
For this I gotta swim underwater, be still and take a picture!!!!

Anyway, I went Snorkeling for the very 1st time ever and I was amazed!!!!
i bought an underwater camera - Olympus 770SW.
Today we went looking for Green Sea Turtles.................


Location - The Island of Kauai



Spotted about 50 yards out and 20 feet down..... Green Sea Turtle



guess he got spooked and off he goes.......





trying to hide...............








and some fishy friends i saw this day also.......................

Great underwater shots. How did you like the camera? My wife & I are going to HI in the fall and I'm contemplating an underwater housing for her SD700IS or perhaps spending a bit more for the Olympus.

I have a housing for my A80 and it works great. Tell me, did you use your flash with these shots? I was in Mexico a few weeks back and had trouble with the flash bouncing back off the plankton. Very nice shots by the way.
