Artist's Description

Every now and then I look out the window, checking to see if there are any new flowers coming out that would make a nice photograph. Every day a few different varieties of birds land in the yard and spend a while eating insects, worms or plants. So if I have some free time and the weather is O.K then I take a few shots of whatever looks promising.

But never in a Million years would I expect to look out the Window and see a Tortoise walking through a suburban back yard! I couldn’t believe the randomness of that event and scrambled to get my camera, adjust the settings and get stuck into a macro/wildlife photo shoot! It was the first time I’ve ever photographed one – and right in my yard where I could carefully control the subject without it being able to scurry away or disappear.
