While exploring the reefs of Ningaloo I happened upon this turtle enjoying a "day spa". Nestled into the reef, it was somewhat ambivalent about my approach but also totally engrossed with the small fish cleaning its body of growth and parasites. The look on its face was as if it was completely enjoying and totally relaxed by the whole experience. I was within inches of it taking this shot and it did not move. Look carefully and you can see a small dark fish called a blenny looking on from either side. Found from Shark Bay, through the north and across the top to Queensland, as well as out to Christmas and Cocos Keeling Islands.
