Turtle in the sun.


This picture was shot last month. I really happened to stumble on the turtle. I knew that in that part of the garden, where the small pond is located, turtles sometimes come up on a small rock formation to take in the sun. Sometimes they are not totally out of the water but in this case, the turtle was clearly on the rock surface. I was able to approach it quite near and by minimizing extreme movements was able to take several shots of it.

Canon XTI, Sigma macro lens 150mm, iso100, f/22, 1/15sec.
