my Camera Critter

I nearly stepped on this guy one day on a walk and before moving on slowly, he (she?) regarded me for a minute or two with that one big eye, turned and lumbered away. The design on the shell was mesmerizing and about the circumference of a large cantaloupe. You can see that his legs and neck were bright yellow--as if he had been dipped in that paint used to make traffic stripes on the road.

This is my contribution to Misty Dawn's MeMe, Camera Critters. Visit her to see all manner of pets and animals. You'll be glad you did!

So there are turtles where you live? Why do all countries have such interesting animals?? And we in Holland only toads, frogs and ducks. LOL.

Gorgeous turtle - is he a Painted?

He sure has a shiny shell. I guess he polished it up for his photo shoot.
