Snapping turtle

Uploaded by: belletrouvaille

Chelmsford, MA (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: First time ever for me to see a snapping turtle on my part of the lake, where it is deeper and has currents. It was also my first time to see a snapping turtle this big (16 inches) in the wild. You can see on its shell that it just started pouring. I had stepped out to get my dog back in the house and was glad that I had my camera!

Wanda, I am so sorry for the delay of my response. I have been very spotty on the site, but I really appreciate you stopping by and noticing my absence! This turtle now looks so huge compared to the new baby turtle that hatched at my home!

About belletrouvaille

belletrouvaille

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.
