Artist's Description

Several men were fishing nearby, as I photo’d this HUGE Red Eared Slider turtle digging holes for her eggs. Several men were older, and I knew they probably grew up eating Turtle Soup, a delicacy here in the South. I knew they would eventually find her. This 20 lb female would feed them all!! I hated to disturb her, but feared for her safety. I then smuggled her across the grounds to a secluded swamp area, and let her go. Not easy trying to carry this and not be noticed, but I did. She then let me get quite close for Parting Shot! Taken in E. Arkansas USA 2013 with a SanyoVPC-E2100.
