    And i thought tortoise was supposed to be slow. My shutter speed of around 1/160 wasn't fast enough to freeze its motion. I ended up with very few keepers! LOL.

    Spiny terrapin, Heosemys spinosa. Too cute:)

    As always, great work!

    Did you shoot this with your macro lens? If you don't mind me asking, which lens do you use, and do you generally use lighting?

    Thanks for looking and comments, PixelRabbit, Kazzy, Josh220, Ankit.

    Josh - yes, with a 180mm macro lens. These were all with natural light, no flash.
