    I was on my summer vacation and on the last day I wanted to go out to shoot wildlife or something natural... On the map, I saw that there is a "turtle lake" not so far away and I decided to go there, check it out.

    The 2. is my favorite too! Moving around, experimenting with depth of field, exposure... without those water drops on it, it wouldn´t look like that. Thank you, guys! I couldn´t stay there at the lake more, I had to go back. Later when I googled the species I found out that I shot 1 native species, it is the Caspian turtle, and the other native one is the European Pond turtle, I have him on short video footage, but he is turned away and you can´t see the head. You know the rule, if you didn´t get the head or the eye, you didn´t get the shot!

    Great captures Leon - I especially like the spider web closeup in #2.

    Real nice set of pics and a nice video to boot. I must say though, it's better to chew than to breath your food. :biggrin-new: Just joking, that was an interesting breakfast, I must try that with my sugar free, chocolate syrup.

    Thank you very much! It would be better without that diagonal shadow on it.

    You have to try it! Oats, 2 bananas, something with chocolate or fruits and most of the time I put a hand full of chopped walnuts on top of it. It gives you enough calories for a good start of the day, vitamins, minerals, and the walnuts have omega 3 fatty acids so you won´t get hungry till midday. I´m eating similar combinations every day, oat is the base... Oat can regulate blood sugar because it is full of fiber.

    I'm type 2 diabetic, the oats drew me in and the rest was icing on the cake, so to speak. I'll definitely give it a go, thanks!
