beach island animal tortoise seychelles
OMG!!! crazy shot
Yes, Debbie, what’s the world coming to when youngsters engage in this behavior in public???
Awesome Got love’em. Great and amazing capture.
Thanks, KatsEye. I do love these wonderful creatures and have new appreciation for their survival into today’s modern era. They are truly hardy survivors.
ohhh boy I thought my safe filter was on for work! amazing creatures :)
Gee, Jenny, I hadn’t given any thought to whether this image would be controversial…:-))) Perhaps I was being prurient taking this photo and should have left the alone couple with their amorous adventures. There was much hissing and many sighs going on during this encounter…but I am revealing too much of this X-rated liason.
oh my .. this got a great laugh from me first thing this morning while drinking my coffee and purusing the uploads of my RB friends. !!
Well, I’m happy to know you had a chuckle when viewing this amorous couple. I actually felt a bit guilty photographing them…when one of the tortoises hollered at me, “take a picture, it’ll last longer,” I did!
Love makes the world go round. Sounds like it was quite the affair…lol.
You’ve flattered me by visiting my work and leaving such supportive comments as well as adding me to your watch list. You have my sincere thanks. =)
Thank you, 2BGood for such delightful comments. Very, very sweet of you. You do terrific work and I’m anticipating more of your lovely art.
I am happy to see there will hopefully be many more of these magnificent creatures.
Well, Sharon, they were certainly putting their best foot forward to propagate the species! :-)))
Oh My lol, they need a room hehehe well seen, guess you couldnt miss them nice work…gina
Oh, I felt a bit guilty about capturing them in the act of the horizontal hula or whatever tortoises would call it but I couldn’t help myself. Hope their little babies are doing well. They’d be just over a year old now.
perhaps he just couldnt be bothered to walk around! :-) what a pic.
Oops, so sorry for my late reply. You have introduced an option I had not considered before…:-)) I guess I just have a dirty mind!
LOL at least someone’s getting something.
Another chuckle-worthy comment! Really, all was calm and collected and then all of sudden without any disregard to bystanders, well you can see what happened.
Couldn’t resist that title…:-)) G
