    Great job with this – beautifully lit and the turtle is even “cute”!!

  • Thanks Gina, turtles, I have found, are not the easieast of subjects to shoot for a portrait! LOL! Although the owners were really chuffed with this image.

    Guess this isn’t the furry part of the series!!! Great shot of this guy taken from this angle. I agree…lighting is great, Marion.

  • LOL, this is the scaley part of the series, I have a feathered portion yet to come.
    Have you ever tried taking a decent shot of a turtle Wendi? This was probably the most challenging subject of all I’ve had so far – but this was also really fun to shoot.

    Haha yeah they can be buggers can’t they.. once they relax there ok.. or in natural habitat but they don’t like environments there not comfortable in!

  • They sure can be, he kept trying to make good his escape everytime I came near him with the camera…he’s an outside turtle and has his own pond & run but he didn’t like me in it. Hence we had to get those little legs off the ground…it’s also quite deceiving just how fast these guys can move. LOL!
