Camera Critters No. 6

I found this big snapping turtle last summer while I was out

searching for wildflowers. I was driving along and there he was in the

middle of the road, so I stopped for a few shots. I always appreciate

it when the wildlife I’m photographing doesn’t run away.

He’s got the perfect face for radio, doesn’t he?

    I’ll admit he’s not the most charismatic creature. 😉

    What a photo! They are the meanest-looking animals. And the myths surrounding them are fantastic.
