Superb close-up portrait of this tortoise. That's probably an old timer. Very good details and colors.

Wow, Colin, this is a beauty. This fellow is great - you have captured him well. I like how you have cropped him too. Great details. Well done.

It could have been a great shot, but focus too soft on the face.
Great POV.

Good shot allround Colin. Nice POV. I like it because it shows his head and his froint door all in one. LOL. I like the expression on his face. Cute in a way. Almost like he's smiling for you.

Nice shot, I like how you framed the turtle, not the typical angle. Good details.

This guy must be very old. He must have seen some amazing things in his lifetime. The sharpness and composition here is stunning.

Well done and thanks for posting

Wonderful tortoise portrait!
