Baby Snapping Turtle
I found it on the path and moved it to where it wouldn’t get squashed by carts or feet and where it was more camouflaged.
I only had the 43mm lens with me and it doesn’t focus close enough for these kinds of images but I utilized the 36MPs of the camera along with a lot of cropping and resizing to make this image. The turtle was only about one inch in diameter.
Thank Heavens, you did not take it home for soup !
