Stunning detail and perfect timing, Brian. Love the variety of textures and the animated expression of disgust - never seen that much character displayed by a tortoise before - LOL

I've been known to roar when I've had a pork chop plastered to my melon and I just can't get to it. My heart goes out to this poor tortoise.

A wonderfully detailed and timed capture of a tortoise's meloncholy, Brian.
