hey there, little snapping turtle, snapping at a shell, ah, there's mysteries inside, i know but what they are i just can't tell for sure
i was going to write a long diatribe explaining my lack of posting, but i figured that would almost be as boring for me to write as it would be for you to read. in addition to not posting i've also not really been processing my photos, so i'm pulling another galapagos photo out of the bag. this was taken on the main island of santa cruz in a ranch called el chato. there were loads of giant galapagos tortoises chilling out during their migration from sea level to higher ground. when you got too close to them they would retract their heads inside their shells and hiss at you. so in order to get this shot i placed my camera on a tripod in front of the hiding head and then moved behind the tortoise with my remote control in hand. i had to wait a while for the tortoise to build up the courage to ignore the camera and continue eating, and even then i was pressing the remote button blind. this guy took it in his stride and kept on chomping the grass like a pro, which is more than i can say about his cousin in the next field who thought my wide angle lens was a special tortuga treat and tried to bite through it. the panicked rush and grab to save my camera resulted in some mutual hissing.
