This is an image of a snapping turtle taken at Mud Lake. I was in a hide waiting for a Night Heron that stood me up when this turtle crawled out of the water onto a nearby log. It seemingly yawned before taking a nap in the hot sun.

Awesome . . . beautiful details when viewed larger!!! :-)
Thank you again lorilee; believe it or not this was shot a f20! in an attempt to get as much detail as possible; I really appreciate you noticing!
Super capture Daniel, great detail, Mark.
Thank you very much Mark
That is both a monster and the epitome of nature’s design.
I gather their bite is worse than their bark , so to speak (not sure if they make a sound but….)
Wonderful image Daniel!
OMG. What a magnificent specimen and capture Daniel. Wow Wow and Wow! INCREDIBLE!
Wow!! You want to stay away from those jaws!! I watched a show about these guys the other day. They said you should never try to pick them up by the tail, you may break their spine by doing so.Excellent capture, Daniel.
