I discovered this unusual combination as i was approaching a bait ball in the hope to take some photographs of sailfish. the small school of fish found a buddy to hide with. the sailfish kept coming in close and even brushed the turtle gentle with it's side.

Location: Ningaloo Reef, Western Australia
