My World Tuesday: Passing Lane?

This snapper was moseying along at Three Rivers park in Woodbury on Saturday morning. He put up with me for a few minutes, and I was rude enough to get a nice little butt shot at the end of our encounter. Why on earth he was in the passing lane on a no-traffic morning, he wouldn't say. I was just pleased and grateful he smiled for his portrait.

  1. And its a lovely smile, too, in its own inimitable way.

    There's something so placid and calming about turtles.

  2. Hi Carly,

    That is quite a fantastic shot! The close-up of the claw is spectacular. They look so prehistoric. I left a message on your previous post about my entry on your blog hop. It had disappeared for a bout an hour and now its back on again. These linky links are temperamental it seems. Have a wonderful week?

  12. Hahaha! Wonderful, Sandy! He's not likely to be charged with speeding even if he is in the passing lane.
