Up close and personal from a different angle.

I like turtles. That is a great close up of his head. Your butterfly photos were wonderful also.

These shots are fantastic!! Love that close up.
In answer to your question, the DVD we got from the library was Season 5 of Scot and Bailey.

I especially like the head shot of the turtle looking at us. Well done.

harry said...

both are nice, but I like that head shot - it has personality (assuming a turtle has personality).

A gorgeous portrait! I love turtles and hardly see them anymore. Usually just sunning themselves on a log in a creek but that is about all. Fabulous images!

Ruth Hiebert said...

I think he is smiling for the camera.

Lovely close-up with all the details!

Love turtles. When the boys were little we had one in a tank for many years. We called him Stretch because he would stretch his neck around to try and bite us.
xx, Carol

These are awesome photos, Rose. There's so much detail on the turtle's face and neck.
