[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
In this photo we are June 15, 2012,
a decisive day of the year 2012,
on the eve June 14, 2012, early in
the morning Ranger my 2nd pointing dog
was going to die.

June 15 in the morning when I wake-up
I cried I screamed so loud that probably
our whole street heard me, then I took
the leash of Ranger and I had done our
morning walking alone and sad.

Afterwards I told myself I can not stay
at home, I took the direction of the
Nature Park du bois de l'īle-Bizard
where in the following weeks it became
my second home.

I'm out doing nature photography, I added
5 new species of birds in my collection of
in-flight photos, I even saw and photographed
my first otter at life, a friend told me :
« it is to Ranger that you owe these photos ».
I would prefer Ranger be alive and not go to
that Nature Park and not do that photos.

There in the nature park between 2 photos
when I walked on the trail, I thought to
Ranger I also thought to Celtick my first
pointing dog (Ranger's Daddy). When Celtick
died on April 13, 2009, there was Ranger that
helped me to pass through these times of sorrow,
and it was only 3 days after I start to go to
bird in-flight photography.

When I made ​​this photo of the turtle,
the next day of Ranger's death, before and
after the photo I cried. This nature park
and the photography helped me get through
these times of sorrow.

In 2013 my third pointing dog will come
(Griffon Korthals) it will be a descendant
of Celtick and of Ranger's brother.

Friends, I wish you all a
Happy & Healthy New Year 2013.

Ciao Asbed
Buon anno anche a te splendida e simpatico il soggetto.
Ciao Nico

Hi Asbed. Hope you have a Happy New Year's Eve. I like how you did not zoom in on the turtle and left some grass around him in the shot. Enviroments can really help a picture. My guess is; this is a Painted Turtle from the little orange I see. A perfect New Years'tutle. TFS and Happy New Year Asbed. Trevor

Hello Asbed,
The capture with having an importance and anxiously waiting for your new Pointing.
