Hello Paul,
Neat image. Its beautiful decoration (or camouflage if you want) is well displayed.
Well done

Hi Paul
Nicely composed desert photo with beautiful turtle. Sharones and colors are great. And I think that it is a very dynamic turtle :-)
Best wishes

Hi Paul,

It has been a while since I have been in Kruger, and your picture makes me miss it even more. A very nice picture of what looks like a Leopard tortoise (Geochelone pardalis). Well done.

Hi Paul.
You managed to capture a very nice moment and show the true step of this cute creature. The DOF is great, not large, not small. Some blurriness of the BG is very nice as well as its sharp parts. Details of the turtle are excellent. Note is interesting despite its shortness. My best wishes for sea passage and TFS.
