Smile and the world smile's with you. by 

Aldabran Tortoise.
Lives at Blackpool Zoo.
His name is Darwin and he is 85 years old.
I hope I look as happy as this when I’m his age, now where’s my anti-wrinkle cream?

    I like the clarity of this picture, especially the way his shell takes up most of the background. I love all kinds of reptiles, but Giant Tortoises are probably the most magnificent! There seems to be something about them that really captures people’s imagination. A fantastic photo.

  • Thanks for your lovely comment. They are easy to capture because they don’t move around too quickly. Hope I look this good at 85!
