One of my favorite places is the fish for fun stretch of Penns Creek. I take my fly rod to hopefully catch a few brown trout but find myself spending most of my time exploring the water's edge to see what inteesting sights I can find to photograph. I was trying to capture a shot of the creek for the early spring assignment when I noticed this wood turtle moving just a few feet from my tripod. I spent the next 20 minutes photographing the turtle as he slowly made his way to the edge of the creek and slipped into the water. I liked this shot as he made his way down over a rock. The turtles back was nicely exposed showing the intricate pattern of the shell.
