Wonderful! An instant award from Liz (and me) as she appreciates turtles and tortoises beyond comprehension. This looks like a side necked turtle.

Great shot...well worth the wait!

There is something loathsome about this animal though (to me at any rate...other opinions equally valid!) which appears to have the head of a snake and the body of a turtle.

I don't know if she is still there, but there used to be a Leatherback Turtle in Boston Aquarium and she loved having her picture taken.
If yu didn't have a camera she ignored you, but as soon as she saw a camera - she was there!

You have framed this turtle nicely, and the dark background sets it off well. It seems to be looking at you, and it was well worth the wait to get this shot. I couldn't resist giving it a Guest Editor Award.
