Apparently, this sea turtle wanted to kick Earth Day off with a bang (and a shellfie).

As a tourist group got ready to snap a picture standing in a body of water in the Philippines, a turtle popped up from underneath the waves and photobombed them, with one of his large eyes looking at the camera and his mouth agape.

"We were posing for a group photo at Apo Island when this sea turtle surfaced to breathe and photo-bombed!," Diovanie de Jesus, who posted the photo on his blog Adventures ni Kulot wrote. "This shallow area in Apo Island, Negros Oriental, Philippines is a feeding ground for sea turtles," the post continued. "Just like what my friend Genesis said, this is a reminder that humans and creatures like this gentle pawikan can co-exist."

As it turned out, the creature was a green sea turtle, which is endangered. "It is illegal to collect, harm, or kill them," de Jesus continued. "Apo Island in the Philippines is one of the world's best known community-managed Marine Protected Area. Happy Earth Day 2015!"

Way to shine Mr. (or Mrs.) Turtle.
