      Gorgeous photo! Wonderful "land"scape... I would say "flying" with turtles (something hawklike about this turtle here) and I just love the idea of flying with him/her as a guide and companion by my side. A most wonderful experience you have shared here!

      Yeah, underwater is is much more like flying - for the turtles and the rays.

      When Deepflight built a sub that flies like a plane, rather than bobbing like a blimp, the sealife interacted very differently. On an early test dive, the inventor found himself dancing with a curious eagle ray.... Moving like they do might be a signal of kinship... and may help express universal gestures for play...

      Open Hatch Dive dive dive

      And saw a similar pattern spinning with the spinner dolphins...

      Alieness: I think so. I looked at the usual place, but the lava surfer may have been swimming. Saw 10 at one time. The dudes were just chillin'

      Thanks LA Lassie!
