THE TORTOISE

My visit to Sandpiper's Place and her series of photos at a trip to the zoo encouraged me to go back through my photos to my trip to the Los Angeles Zoo a couple of months ago. I always take so many pictures but never post them all because there are so many. Since I haven't been anywhere this week I thought I'd go ahead and revisit my own zoo trip. This will probably carry over into the next several posts.

This big 'ol turtle, I mean tortoise was big enough for two people to ride on. Personally, I found it's almond shaped eyes a little intriguing.

Nice shots of these big fellas!
And you were keeping them from us? ;)
Cheers, Klaus

Klaus - Thank you. I always take so many I feel I need to narrow them down to just a few or I'd start boring anyone who was looking.

These are great! I especially like that next-to-last one. Terrific detail of the surface of his leg.

Bobbie - Thank you! This was easy to shoot because it moved so slowly! LOL! The 2nd to last one is my favorite one too.
