This morning I finally saw the turtle that has lived on our property for years. Happy to see him, I ran in to get my camera. When I went towards him I gently asked if I could take his picture. He looked at me and the next thing I knew he was coming towards me. He said 'yes'.
Who says you can't communicate with a turtle? He came so close that I had to back up with the lens that I was using. This final shot is his closeup. I thanked him and he went on his way. What a gorgeous guy.
