This Snapping turtle was trying to get ashore where we were fishing. When he realized we were in the way he moved further up the shore.

Ciao Trevor, it's somethimng of wrong in your post, may be in reduction process, I try to do a ws, hope you don't mind, great capture of lovely turtle, ciao Silvio

Dear Trevor,
I admire your photo of the observation of the turtle as well as the courage to defy purists about photo technique and posted this image as "photo reportage". I add this photo to my Favorites as well as to my theme "animals' Behaviour".

Thanks for sharing.
Warm Greetings from the Tzaneen Dam in Limpopo, South Africa
