Photographer at Work

Eye of the Turtle

Hand held shot because the turtle was too low to the ground to set up a tripod. Shooting this image was a most interesting experience because the turtle was an ill tempered critter who snapped at me twice. That was a tad unerving because he was sizable with a 6 inch open jaw. Fortunately, I was quicker than he was and avoided being bitten. However, I did come home with bug bites galore from sitting in the grass. What we won't do for our art. This is totally just one original photo - not a composite.

This is so cool, I was wondering what kind of eye it was. So much different from mammals.
I presume a rather large turtle or was it a tortoise? Great details and reflection. Excellent!!!
