Awwwwww, LYDIA! I LOVE THIS! I think Turtles are about the coolest animals to photograph. They so often have smiles on their faces, don't they? He just looks downright adorable!

Is that the baby again? Dang, he's cute :-) I don't know if he looks happy, exactly, but certainly superior to the likes of us!

As someone who has tried to coax our pet turtle out of his shell for multiple challenges, I commend you on getting this guy to pose and even smile!

Would have liked to have seen a tighter crop but still a nice shot, you've actually managed to make a tortoise look cute.

Scutter wanted to join the Tortoise Club so bad, that he resorted to taking Turtle Steroids. However, after buying a black-market bottle of what he thought was muscle growth hormone, he was horrified to find out that it was actually just a home-brewed mixture called "Mama Tortoise's Happy Time Tonic and Hair Shampoo", and that it wasn't the muscles that he had grown.
