Am I correct in thinking that these can be quite dangerous? Only if you tickle it under its chin I suppose... Where was it headed?
What a nice visitor! Turtles are so cool!
Did you use a "slow" speed?
I understand you had to hurry...
Did your daughter adopt the turtle?? :-)
Awe! I had a turtle when I was a little girl.
Great photo. Luck your daughter had her eyes peeled!
You "sprang"? Heh. Heh. Reminds me of the turtle and the hare. Are you the guy the turtle looked at and asked, "What hair, er...hare?"
He's cute! Did he snap at you?

Nice shot !! So beautiful tortoise ! Great..Unseen Rajasthan
What a fine visitor.
Butler, the ever knowledgeable fauna expert, would like to correct you and say that the turtle is not a snapper, rather a northern painted turtle. He's just sayin'.
Hard to catch, but it is worth the effort!
I love turtle, They are harmless animals.
Wow, at first sight I thought it was a brass sculpure...
