    I hope you moved this guy off the road after the shot. What a catch. Not often any longer you see turtles in the AV.

I like your shot best :-) Including all of the road really shows this dudes journey! I am open to going anywhere, hopefully before Marilyn leaves! With this triple digit heat, somewhere cool would be nice :-)

I guess if he's safe, you must have been, as well. Great perspective and depth of field.
