    I saw more turtles yesterday than I ever have in a single day, including a couple of firsts: a turtle pair doing ... ummm, turtle things, and a small snapping turtle in a hilltop swampy area (wonder how it got there?). It got very cross when I picked it up. Lots of force behind that neck and beak, even for a turtle less than a foot long. The last turtle in this sequence also seemed to be unhappy that I interrupted his/her lunch. NEX-6 + Pen F 38/1.8
