pretty sure this is an eastern long-necked turtle

went out with katee and noticed it walking thru our paddock ..
they are pretty shy and if you go too close they curl their heads into their shell ..
this one might have been an alpha male .. joke ..;)

Great portrait . . . and I'd keep my finger away from this guy. I know they are shy, but this one looks capable of surprises. Love the selective focus.

This looks like a youngster with a keen curiosity in its eyes. Beautiful color and processing

This is cool, sharp where is needs to be and all that lovely outoffocusness where it doesn't :) I'm not 100% convinced by the strong vignette (especially along the left side) but I can be a lot heavier handed lol.

His expression really adds life to this shot.

Oh, what a fabulous expression! Like he has some devilment planned. Great phooto Roz.

I'm so glad you still have Katee with you. (Tisa, who was about the same age, I think, passed away last year. Miss her so much.)
