Hi Radomir. Glad you had a good and safe trip. My grandmother had a Tortoise when i was a small boy. she had it for years.
excellent shot showing all the detail in the shell. with fine colours. they are very strong and can climb. very well done TFS. very good notes too.
Have a good sunday.
I like this tortoise capture!
It's very appropriated the pose, that let us know how this reptile looks like in its own habitat.
Very good and interesting your explanation about the characteristics of this specie.
Well done and thanks for share it with us.
The sharpness and natural color in this shot are just excellent. That camera does well!... in your hands. : ) It's a wonderful shot.
Evelynn ; )
Radomir, this is very nice.
Great pov and composition.
I like composition too.
A warm welcome back to TN after such a long absence. I was sure you would show us exclusive shots from your visit and you have not dissapointed me. This is a splendid shot of the Tortoise in natural environs. Very sharp image and focus with perfect natural lighting. Excellent POV and a superb composition. Very educative notes too. Kudos.
Some piece of armor it is carrying...:-)
Well composed, Radomir.
Nice to see you back. I didn't know that we had some European Tortoises until emari put one on the net a few months ago. But yours seems to be another species. So our archives here become more and more complete. Great and interesting post.
Thanks and best regards

Interesante ver que estos seres aún viven en algunas zonas y que se respetan ... Buen documento con buena definición y enfoque. Saludos Radomir.
A nice full picture of this tortise, it fills the frame well. The grown pattern on the shell is well defined and easy to see.

Well you certainly did not waste any time. This is a well focused, sharp, perfectly colored picture. Amazing creature. A bit larger in girth then some other of this type. Well done and noted.
Sorry, I didn't notice you'd come back in this shape! ;-) Sorry, it's very nice to have you back and I'm glad you enjoyed your trip to Macedonia! Great shot of this Tortoise together with an interesting note.
Great sharpness and a fine composition.
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Zolw tez jest oczywiscie swietny. I chyba to jest raczej rzadki obiekt na treknature. Ujecie z prostej ale ciekawej perspektywy ladnie zakomponowane. Tylko sie jakas wredna trawka wkradla :-)

Hi Friend Radek,
Thanks for your nice capture and useful information. Really turtles (in sensu lato) are the most arcaic group amongst reptiles. Well done friend!
