This amazing snapping turtle wandered out of our woods, and headed across the street. He/She would get frightened when we approached and tuck in his head, making him very cooperative for photos. I love the weathered, aged look that the detail of this shot captures. No real idea how old he is, but he looks like he’s seen many springs come and go.
