Mom Snapping Turtle PortraitMay 31, 2015

Any common snapping turtle is impressive, but a portrait brings out another quality: prehistoric.

  From late May to early June, the mom snappers leave the Toftrees pond and venture here and there to lay their eggs. And so mom was too busy laying her eggs to pay much attention to me.

Photography note: The photos were taken with a Pentax K3 and the SMC-DA* 60-250mm lens in late May 2015.
