Objects in this image are smaller than they appear. This little fellow is about the size of a silver dollar.

    I like that little fella! Ya got yourself a nice picture there. I must say though that if him not being centered reduced the impression a tiny bit for me. Never the less though, a very nice picture.

    I adore your photography skills. From my experience, It’s often difficult to take photos of small objects especially if you want the fine details to show up. May I know which company set of macro lenses are you using?

    • This isn’t a macro lens shot – it’s one of Nikon’s cheapest lenses, in fact, the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR. It retails for $399, but if I had to do it all over again, I wouldn’t pay more than $100 for that glass. I’d rather save my cash for a better lens.

  4. Great photo and great subject for a photo – doesn’t move too fast, great graphic stripes, can be set down on a plain surface – perfect.

  5. These photos are good,can we take this for our sites

  7. Love the shot of the turtle. You don’t need a worry about this subject moving to fast for the camera. Perfect Halloween Picture!

  8. This turle (that looks like a frog to me) seems like it’s talking to you… lol! cute little fella!

  9. Cute little fella, I have not seen that kinda turtle in real life.

  10. Wow! I have that little fellow’s cousin swimming in my aquarium! I tried to make an 8 out of 2 turtles but they won’t stay still..for a logo i was trying to do that

  11. Hey,

    You managed to capture the turtle in a very nice position, thus resulting this awesome photo. Good job.

  12. Nice shot !
    I also think its a great portrait because you really caught a nice expression on the turtle’s face 😉
