  • Best Season: Spring
  • Description: CAPTURED THIS ON A SHOOT AT THE DENVER ZOO. I LOVE THIS OLD GUY. HE HAS BEEN THERE EVER SINCE I MOVED TO CO ALOT OF YEARS AGO. HE IS ABOUT 2.5 FT LONG HEAD LIKE A 16" SOFTBALL AND WEIGHS WELL OVER 100 LBS. HE DOESNT DO MUCH EXCEPT FLOAT UP ABOUT EVERY 20 SECONDS TO BREATH. ONLY HIS FRONT FEET COME UP AND HE STOPS WHEN HIS SHELL HITS THAT BRANCH. IT GETS HIS HEAD JUST HIGH ENOUGH TO TAKE A BREATH. THEY CAN LIVE WELL OVER A HUNDRED YEARS AND HAVE BEEN FOUND WITH ARROWHEADS AND MUSKETBALLS IN THERE SHELLS. ONE INTERESTING FACT. I WAS FIGURING IF HE BREATHS EVERY 20 SECONDS HOW MANY BREATH WOULD THAT BE OVER TEN YEARS. IT IS 15,768,000. JUST THINK IF IT WAS 100 YEARS. WHAT A LIFE, BOY MAKES ME COUNT MY BLESSINGS. OK THIS WAS A HARD CAPTURE ANS THE BACKGROUND ROCKS WERE BLACK AND THERE WAS A SPOTLIGHT IN THE CENTER OF HIS BACK. ONLY ONE OPTION. HDR TO MAKE IT WORK.

    Very colorful capture David! I agree, it's a great place to visit/photograph. It's a shame that the "middle bridge" gave way. Would have been neat to work with the entire area. Still a fabulous...
