May 19, 2010: I carry my camera everywhere since I never know what I will encounter on my way. That is why I added "trouvaille" (good find) to my name. Didn't my dog find a good one to cuddle by? It had been a long sleep since I decided to post on WunderPhotos. (it still took me a month after I registered with it) This is more fun than Facebook! (though I have never had a Facebook account) Thank you for all your amazing photos that have inspired me day by day! Notes: 1. I don't edit my photos other than slight cropping, though I am aware of the old ways of changing results in the darkroom and admire what people can do nowadays on the computer. 2. With very few exceptions, I post photos in a series in chronological order from left to right and don't jump dates back and forth.
9 - I'm already driving Mommy crazy!

Caption: I had checked on him 10 minutes earlier and he looked cozy in his egg. Then, he was out! To drive me crazy, he made sure he crawled over a delicate 'brewing' egg (the right one) in front of me. He still cannot walk on his back legs, instead, he uses a clumsy swimming motion. It was so much fun seeing him move like a baby! I was really worried when he was still not out of his egg after four days. I learned later with a herpetologist that he probably hatched prematurely since he still had egg yolk attached to his plastron. For the record, he was born weighing 4 g (0.14 oz) and his shell measured 24 mm (just short of an inch) in length. The 'X' was marked on the eggs so the babies know which side is up.
