This guy has his own version of 4WD, by the looks of the scars on that old log he has done this many times before

Great photo of that pond turtle. Now I know where they got the idea for Freddy Krugers knife hands. :roll:

Beautiful photo of the turtle. The detail on the legs, shell and throat is wonderful.

Great shot. You don't see too many turtle "action" shots.

I would agree with you opn that point. I have hundreds of shots of these guys sunning themselves but this sequence are the only action shots I have of turtles.

Lovely shot, Tomsh, and I like the unity of color in the turtle's breast plateand the log. That twig in the lower left takes away slightly from the main event IMO, because of the white accent, but certainly nothing serious. Great job.

ISO400 f8 1/250th -2/3 exp comp, EF300 f4 lens with 1.4 converter. Here is another shot inthat same sun at f16 without the compensation and you'll see the blown areas on the shells.
