Turtle castle

Found this green turtle scratching his shell on this coral head while on a drift dive from Something Special to Eden Beach. The turtle was so enjoying the scratch that it didn't cared that I slowly approached. At the time I took the shot, I was inches away from the turtle (the effect of a fisheye lens). At that point the turtle decided that I was getting a bit too comfortable, so it turned to move on. I was able to get this shot as it twisted towards me just before it left its coral head.
