These first three were taken from the lanai of our condo one afternoon when I was being lazy and just enjoying being on the island.
A little help please?
I came across this turtle in the waters in front of our condo and he had some fishing line hanging from his mouth. I noticed it just after I took the photo so I reached down to see if it would come out and the honu (Hawaiian green sea turtle) actually opened his mouth like he wanted me to take it out.
Fortunately for both of us there was no hook on the end of the line and it came right out just by me grabbing the line and the turtle turning his head.
It wasn't any kind of big rescue by any means but it was a little humbling to know that this happens more than you know and it felt good to give a helping hand.
