Great find and capture Yves. And it goes to show how hazardous wildlife photography can be at times. Harry looks very content here and he gave you a very pleasing photo.

Thanks Heather. Sure is one of those precious moment in nature.

Looks like a tricky shot to get your footing. He sure is a big fellow. Agree with Jane cool shot. You’ll have to give him a nick name.

You got it right Debra. Between me and the water there is a lineup of dense shrub. It needed a few minutes to check for the best see through shot. None were perfect. To capture that one I was danerously unbalanced toward the water. To clear the branch in front of its head I would have push over the limit and fall in the water. I did name him Harry but did not want to put it in the description.

Cool, Yves!!

Yves Langlois

Yes, pretty cool indeed. Not usual to see a big one like that.

Oh man, what a night! Big old snapping turtle having its usual nap of the afternoon.
