Week 19
My Mother Thinks I’m Pretty!

This Soft-Shelled Turtle just got thru laying her eggs in our front yard. Didn’t want to disturb her, so I waited until she started to leave the nest and snapped a few pictures of her before she went back into our neighbor’s pond, where I’m pretty sure she lives. Don’t know what Nature was thinking when she designed this turtle :-).

My settings were ISO 200, f/6.3, 1/100 sec at 260mm (70-300mm). Applied Topaz Adjust 5’s Photo Pop filter.

  1. No kidding. That is one ugly turtle. How does it eat with that snout. Like a straw? That is cool that you caught it laying eggs. Now you will need to keep an eye on the nest and hopefully you will catch them hatching. 🙂


  2. LOL! She is oogly! Nicely captured! How fortunate you have her laying her eggs on your property!! I bet the babies aren’t even cute!
