I had to stop and take a few shots of this ancient beast and I pulled to the side of a dirt road I was driving on late yesterday afternoon ( May 28 2011.)
Canon 7D and 500F4
Ottawa Ontario Canada
Fantastic capture of this old wise one, such detail in his face and that eye. This is simply fantastic. Instant fave……..
Thanks very much Rebecca :-)

wow wonderful image of this old beast, I hope you kept your distance :-))
Great shot :)
Thanks Michael :-)
Great details here Gary. Was she laying eggs?
Thanks Stephen ,,,no signs that eggs were being laid…It was on the gravel shoulder of the road and i know that when we had a cottage they would sometimes lay eggs in sandy.loamy soil on our neighbour’s lot.
Awesome capture Gary
Thanks Daniel :-)
Want to lose a lens? Or at least a toe. Fine shot of this curmudgeon. Spent lots of time in my day avoiding these guys in Duck Lake, & not too long ago, I encountered a really small hatchling among fallen branches in a favorite swimming spot. It darted away before I could get a picture.
Awesome for sure!
