p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Some Animals from the Big Island Hawaii (Turtles, Whales,...)


I was on the big island last weekend. After hiking on the molten lava and burning the bottom of my hiking boots ( http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/1201496 ). Here are my best turtles that were right on the beach in front of the fairmont hotel.

1-4 of 4

Comments and feedback is appreciated.

Whales - these are kind of weak shots but I ran out of time to photograph.

I will have to go back.

Nice shots Scott. I particularly like the turtles and especially the bird.

Any idea what the vibrant blue/green patch is in #6 (kind of bottom right)?

acjd: Glad you like the bird. Thanks for the feedback. Much appreciated. Scott


EverLearning: Glad you like the turtles. Usually I take pictures of bears but turtles will do when you are stuck in Hawaii. The blue/green patch is a baby whale. I think they must roll over to draft with the mom when she is traveling. Thanks for the feedback. Much appreciated. Scott

A lovely collection of photos Scott! Turtle images are first rate. You got some nice whale images too. The yellow bird is quite a striking image.

A very nice series. The whales would be a special treat.
#3 stands out for me. I enjoy the symmetry of the shot, with the age old turtle balanced between beach and ocean.

No such thing as "weak" whale shots... well done, but still worth a return trip.
Turtles are great to see, you can just feel how slow they move... #2 is terrific.
Not sure what the beautiful yellow bird is but... wow! It's a great shot Scott.

Really neat shots!

I think the yellow bird is a saffron finch.

The turtles are marvelous Scott! These indeed are a change of pace for you. Were you scared not to have trees over your head Just seeing the whales is a wonderful experience, no excuses needed there. The yellow bird is a marvelous contrast to the almost monochromatic environment. Well done Hope you had a wonderful trip!

Great to see turtles on the beach. Were they laying eggs? You got some good low level shots of those guys. Don

Sorry for the tardy responses - we have been traveling.

KCollet: Glad you like the collection. Its been a while since I have found wildlife in Alberta - they must be all hiding in a snowbank Thanks for the feedback. Much appreciated. Scott


MtnM: They are an ancient looking species - they look very grumpy to me. Glad you like 3. Thanks for the feedback. Much appreciated. Scott


surfnron: Glad you like the yellow bird. Not sure what kind of bird it was but it was very yellow. I guess I will have to do some googling to find out. Thanks for the feedback. Much appreciated. Scott


KirkB: Glad you like 2 and the others. A day on the ocean is great whether the whales breach and you catch them or not. Thanks for the encouragement. Much appreciated. Scott

kmunroe: Glad you like them all and the yelow bird. Thanks for the feedback. Much appreciated. Scott


tfoltz: Its funny what you can find in front of a very busy hotel. My wife likes to take in the sun under the umbrella and I just wander around the resort (attracting attention with my lens) looking for pictures. A great spot. Thanks for the feedback. Much appreciated. Scott


cprince8403: Thanks for the identification. I will google the saffron finch and learn a bit about it. Much appreciated. Scott


thedutt: Glad you like 8 (and 3). The whale mouth looks like a tug boat going through the ocean. Thanks for the feedback. Much appreciated. Scott

Tim Kuhn: It was a wonderful long weekend trip. I house hardwood floors were being re-done and we needed to move out of the weekend and my youngest son is on a school trip to Europe so we said - we need a hotel - where should we go.... And after walking on nearly (within the hour) formed lava and chasing whales it was a great weekend. Thanks for the feedback. Much appreciated. Scott



DonGut: The turtles are just coming out of the water to warm up in the sun. The low level shots were the result of the 600mm lens from a considerable distance. They came out well considering the time of day was near noon. Thanks for the feedback. Much appreciated. Scott
