Hoping for a good score in these dog-eats-dog small number challenges. I do consider myself lucky to have gotten this shot at all. The aquarium where the animal is kept is super awkward to work in, not to mention the 1000"s of people around you... pushing, bumping, staring, shouting... what a country to be in, this South Korea, LOL!

I can only wait and see if this is perceived to be unusual at all... if it is I should expect a 6+. If not, maybe a 5.5. I will also vote this time.... and reward good pics of unusual objects, not rewarding ordinary objects in strange/unusual places.

Cropped and global adjustments in ACR, dodging and burning, resizing and sharpening in PSCS4. somewhat oversaturated to place the focus on the heads, RoT on eye of the right eye of the right head.

So this really is a two-headed turtle, then? Does this occur often with this type of turtle?
