Weekly Photo Challenge: Refraction


From Fernandina.

Refraction distorts a sea turtle illuminated by the sun in shallow water.  I don’t know why it was this close to shore, but I was glad to snap a picture.  There are several species of sea turtles that can be seen in the Galápagos, and we actually got to swim with a few during one of our snorkeling excursions.  (These are NOT the same as the giant tortoises the islands are famous for.)
