Turtle

IMG_7759

We rarely get to see a turtle. This guy leisurely swam toward us and then around me. He easily was faster and I simply spun around in place. I was fumbling for the right camera exposure. Lots of things are done by anticipating and by repetition. I needed to switch from flash to natural light. I’m better. The color balance is not quite right. The turtle was a little farther away than the strength of my flash. What the heck! I got a shot close up and good enough that I can tell this story. This is the usual way I capture an image. Unlike the recent story where the group had captured the turtle, this is their house and I am a guest. I suppose in the extreme, turtle soup; but I hope not.
