Baby Softshell Turtle 02 by 1ASP1 Baby Softshell Turtle 02 by 1ASP1
This is a picture of a young softshell turtle found near my parents' pond. Like their name suggests, they have soft shells unlike most other turtles. They also have unique features like a pointy snout that can wiggle, which is cool From head to tail it was about 3 inches long.

These pictures are the first I have taken with my new Canon 60mm EF-S macro lens. The lighting is a bit harsh (I had one bright lamp on it), but I thought the leaves I used worked well for color and a setting. If you have any macro tips, especially on lighting, let me know.

Thanks! They really are beautiful. I once found one that had bright orange markings instead of the yellow. The yellow is cool, but the orange was very striking. I wasn't able to take any pics unfortunately. Take care!
