Default Ms. Snapper

I saw Clint's beautiful photos of the frogs in his pool (not to mention the dragonfly series... beautiful) and thought I'd post pics of Ms. Snapper. She had just spent half a day digging a hole and laying her eggs in 95 degree heat. Ms. Snapper then covered up the hole, walked 200 yards and was ready to slide into the river and relative comfort when I saw her. I'm sure the last thing she needed was me with a camera.

Great shot - I'm still trying to photo the one in my father-in-laws pool. No luck yet.

Thanks everybody!

NileLily,
I know, she was cute! Her beautiful face makes me smile.

Clint,
It's easier to photograph them on land when they are not so close to water. She had 20 feet to go to reach the river, and she stopped moving when I approached.

Greg,
FZ35. I've had it about 2 months. I'm selling my mom's house which is in the woods on a river. It's really beautiful and I will miss it, so I've been taking pics of the land and everything on it while getting the house ready for sale. The camera is making it easy and I'm just using it in P mode.

Laurie

Well done, Laurel-

Nice work and a bit of variety from cvleaning up the house for the up coming sale.

Thanks, Sarah Joyce.

Yup, it provides a nice break from the cleaning up and cleaning out.

Thanks, Happy Peasant. Maybe noble would be a term one could use.
