'One Foot in The Grave' 'I don't believe it!' Old Victor Meldrew. Magic images, brings back memories of when I a tortoise, not quite on this scale.

Have you got or had the storm yet, apparently, according to Colleen it was over London at 1:30am, it woke me up at 6:00am, it's quite spectacular; if only I knew how to photograph litening.

Fabulous creature, great framing and tone in the first, the second shows the whole thing and I like its dark skin.

I do like the toning of V1, and the closeness. I feel so sorry for these creatures as they always look so sad. Sad

I am going for V2 simply as V1 is a little over exposed AND I might have cropped the top of V1 concentrating more on the Turtle

You're probablt right..these are some of my `second-string' shots, so not as pristine as some of the others...I kept the top in to show the shape of the shell, but take the point Smile

Love the ''gummy'' look in V2.
Looks like me without my teeth in !!
And probably it can still move faster than I can !!
