[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This guy had just walked across the road and I spotted him moving on the slight slope to the side of the road. Managed to take a few shots lying on the ground and getting a "tortoise eye" view of his profile.

Hope you like it.

Cropped a little, contrast, slight colour balance and high pass sharpen added.

Thanks. Tim

Nice shot Tinman, it's a shame that here in Australia we don't have those running around in the wild :(

Nice capture, he's looking at ya square in the eye and you SHOT HIM!! haha. Goodwork.

What a great shot!
Very clear details,nice composed,amazing colour.

Hi Tim. I take it this is just the standard economy size tortoise,not the ridiculous car-sized things they have in Tonga.
Still...Tortoises are lovely docile things,and make great footstools.
A great profile.
Well done.

Excellent shot, Tim.
Well done on the composition and details.
