That really is cute. He seems to be looking at his foot and thinking, "Hey can I eat this?". Turtles are ALWAYS thinking about what next to put into their stomachs! I have 5 and 1 tortoise...they ate always begging for more food!
haha. yeah. i shot with a point and shoot for a LONG time b/c i couldn't afford a dSLR. granted, the new camera has helped me do things my old camera just COULDN'T, but i'm always preaching that the camera doesn't make the photographer, so comments like yours on my older works really make me happy.
Wow - the lighting of the shot is awesome - very atmospheric. The markings on the head and neck are gorgeous..what breed is it, do you know? Is it the red-eared slider, as below? I know nothing of turtles, to be honest Great shot!
