Photo of the Day - 5/14/2014

Several years ago, I was walking around Lone Lake when I saw something unexpected on the path.  A snapping turtle.  A fairly large snapping turtle.  And nowhere near water.  And just sitting there (or lying or relaxing or whatever the proper term is).

Since I had learned many years before not to go for a walk without a camera handy (since the best photo ops always occur when you don't have the means to capture them), I was prepared and managed to take as many shots as I wanted.  I think this one was the best as it shows the size of the claws, the texture of the skin and the eyes that are prepared for what may come next.
