Not walking on the road is better for your health.
Ha - did you find this guy on the road - NICE..... and of course you made sure Mr. Turtle got to the other side, eh :)
What a neat looking turtle!
he's huge!! what a big turtle. snapping i guess. ( :
those snappers are so prehistoric looking...
Now that's a turtle with remarkable presence. What a brilliant find.
They are cool looking, just a shame they do so mean! Great shots!
Great shots. He looks a bit out of place.
I have a soft spot for these prehistoric looking creatures :)
I agree with TexWisGirl. It's a Snapping Turtle... so take care of your fingers.
I wouldn't get too close to this snapping turtle. They earned their name honestly. Hope he got safely across the road and into an area better suited for an old turtle.
What great shots!! I do love those snappers! Great post for the day, Genie! Hope you're enjoying a great weekend!!
Yes, some nice pictures, beautiful turtle, an animal very archaic! Greetings!
That turtle as a face only a mother could love.You don't have to make the owls. You can buy them and then do something with it.
That is so cute!! ...but it's funny because I had a very similar shot I almost used this week! But it was of a Gopher tortoise, a very different looking turtle.
He looks like a shapping turtle. Stay away from the front of him, hope he made it.
What a cute little turtle, and glad he is making it to the other side with no mishap
Hi Genie!Did he come up out of your creek just for a portrait session? :)In answer to your question, yes, I am ready for fall. It's one of my favorite times of the year. The temps are in the mid 70's and I'm really enjoying it.
The grass really is greener on the other side! Great photo!LeaLea's menagerie
Fabulous shots of this strange looking critter.
With snapping jaws and long nails this guy looks like he defend himself if he had to.
What a cutie, hope he managed to cross the road without harms.
I think I would give this one a wide berth- snappers are mean little buggers if you get too close! Nice capture!
Great shots, but way too close to a snapper for me! (They can stretch those necks out a looong way to strike like a snake. I nearly got a toe bitten that way once. LOL)
You won't find turtles like that in my part of the country. Very nice photos.
Never know what you are going to find. Thanks for the wonderful comments on my blog.. Hope you have a great week
I hope he made it across! :)
That's way closer than I want to get to a snapping turtle. Great (and brave) captures!
Some turtles do take chances, don't they?!
great find!! i found a baby snapper at our old house. he was adorable! i released him into the pond.
That is the strangest looking tortoise/turtley thing I have ever seen! Such a funny face!Well, I'm glad the other commenters named him, because I had no idea what he was. I've heard of snapping turtles, but we don't have them in England. Our little tortoises are from Greece, I believe, and are totally harmless, unless you trip over them!
A snapper! Glad it didn't snap you!Thank you for your contribution to Macro Monday 2!Macro Blossoms
