Angulate Tortoise

Find the tracks

I have been sent on interesting photographic assignments over the years, and each time I enjoy the little stretch that comes from people wanting what they want, which is the thing they can see in their mind’s eye. The latest version of this was the instruction to find some tortoise tracks to be displayed on an information board in Yzerfontein about our Angulate Tortoises. Easier said than done when there is still lots of rain and cold weather about, and these little creatures are tucked tightly into their shells and not moving. Luckily this morning arrived already warm and I found this obliging resident of the dunes. Not sure yet if this shot is going to make the grade, but I have enjoyed the hunt and tracking down of the subject!
