Driving down a dirt road in a landfill this foggy morning I spotted this little guy walking in front of me. I grabbed my camera to take a quick pic but he was pretty shy and quickly hid inside his shell. So I waited and every time I would try to get a photo he closed up. My brain seems to function better early in the morning and I placed the camera on the ground in front of the turtle and set it up to use my wireless remote. I was able to fire the camera from a few feet back with the camera blocking my view from the turtle. When he popped out I snapped a few pics! Pentax K20D, DA 17-70.
