A critter rarely seen here on TN. A nice close-up of this adult Snapping Turtle as it waits patiently for dinner to pass by. Sharply focused and displaying natural coloration. As a young boy I used to catch many snappers which I then used for soup stock. Pretty neat how well you can see it's pink tongue.
scary and interesting, TFS Ori
the turtle looks fantastic on your picture, the sharpness and colors are great.
