365- Intersection


365- Intersection, originally uploaded by boomer3297.

We found this guy at an intersection in our neighborhood. As you can see he is quite large and didn’t move very quickly. We all just hung around till he got to the other side of the road fearing he might get hit by a car. Although it would be hard NOT to see him.

    Wow, this is one big dude! There was a ran over turtle in the middle of our road this week – you would think they would try to move a little faster when a big old tire is about to hit you LOL I had to show this one to my boys (we have a 100 gallon aquarium for 3 turtles).. Ugh…..they loved you picture anyways!

  2. Wow, that is one cool shot. I wonder how old he is. Does look rather like an ancient old guy.

    Wow an OAMNT (Old Age Mutant Ninja Turtle. Wonder where he was rushing off to?

  4. What a find! Great capture.

    Turtles do not rush anywhere. If they think they are in danger, they simply stop, then pull their head and limbs into their shell – which does not protect them when a 2 ton vehicle runs over them!

    Glad you stuck around to make certain he made it to the other side.

  5. So smart to get down to his level for this shot. It would have really lacked impact taken from above. They are pretty fascinating creatures.

  6. Lucky you, this and the above shots are so cool. I’m glad too that you shot low. Turtles are very rare here and I don’t know why, it’s much more moderate in climate…
