Hermann's tortoise - Testudo hermanni

By Mendipman  
One from our holiday in Corfu back in early July, we decided on a trip out to the British Cemetery in Corfu town with good local intel that I would be able to find the wild tortoise's that inhabit the cemetery.

I have to admit I was sceptical that we would find anything as the temperature was over 36 degrees, but I was very pleased to find four individuals in the couple of hours we were there and the cemetery history was very interesting too.

As far as the tortoise's were concerned, they were only interested in one thing in the heat of the afternoon.

Best viewed large.

Many thanks for the votes and comments on the previous upload of the Harebell and Hoverfly and especially to Paul (Grumby), Malcolm (M_squared), Sylvia (Sylviwhalley) and Alfie (AlfieK) for your User Awards, all so very much appreciated.
