It was a typical groupie in Apo Island, Negros Oriental in the Philippines. Everyone readily smiled for the camera when a sea turtle surfaced from the water and was photographed with the group.
Diovani De Jesus, a local traveler, posted this photo of him along with his other friends – and this adorable creature.

According to his blog, “We were posing for a group photo at Apo Island when this sea turtle surfaced to breathe and photo-bombed! This shallow area in Apo Island, Negros Oriental, Philippines is a feeding ground for sea turtles. Just like what my friend Genesis said, this is a reminder that humans and creatures like this gentle pawikan can co-exist.”
Apo Island is a volcanic island located in the southern area of the Philippines. Its marine reserve is maintained and protected by the National Integrated Protected Area Act (NIPA) under jurisdiction of the Protected Area Management Board (PAMB).
Diovani resides in the Philippines and calls himself a protector of nature.
