This little guy is only about 4 cm long, I got right down in front of him for this picture. He was in the middle of one of the paths at Point Pelee Nation Park. After I took the picture, I placed him in the grass so he didn't get stepped on.


Thanks for the picture Carolyn, its a beauty - he looks a little grumpy, but he should be thankful that you moved him to safety!

What a lovely close-up of this turtle, you must have been face to face with this little guy to get such a good picture
