Black Sea Turtle

Black Sea Turtle

This nice Black Sea Turtle posed ever so briefly for photo.  He was highly admired by all of the children at the aquarium which furthered my need to be agile in my photography.   Squeezing in for a moment to get the shot sometimes is harder than the shot itself. 🙂

    • Thanks Consuelo. I tried to make sure the eye was super sharp.

  5. Thank you, Simone. He was fairly engaged with the observers. Maybe because it was almost feeding time. 🙂

  6. Very nice closeup of the turtle, Sean. The detail on the eye and skin is beautiful. I’ve been there myself. Having to squeeze in front of a horde of children briefly to take a shot of a croc at the zoo. Haha 😀

    • It is an art, to push children aside. 😉 Thanks, Vincent.
