A Missed Nature Shot?

by taboma / May 10, 2008 3:19 PM PDT

I wish I had a camera with me the other day at work going out a side door. There was a very tiny Painted Turtle outside the doorway where I work. I picked him up and put him back back into the tree line and open space near where I work about 50 yards away
The baby turtle was about an inch and a quarter in size. Cute to watch him. He was just looking at me.
Missed another nature shot, darn it!
I wish I had my camera and take a macro shot of that small turtle. The coloration on the bottom side of this turtle is amazing. Kind of a bright yellow-orange and stripes of red on the edges of the underbelly shell.

I want to meet up with this turtle and photograph him next year.

Another reason to carry a pocket digital camera in your automobile.
Never know when a great shot will be missed.
Do not leave home without one!!

Does anyone specialize in macro phography or have examples on this forum? I would like to view them.

Macro photos ?

I agree that a P&& camera is quite in need eventually, just like the incident you came across. I'm no expert to the macro photography. From what I heard and experienced, most shots were done with using a tripod, flashes, shutter release set, with some sheets of black satin. A bit complicate and demanding to me, but worth viewing those pictures. Love the short cut, haha. Any way, spring and fall are the best time of year for any outdoor and indoor shooting. Enjoy Kevin.

This was a short range shot in macro on my point and shoot. I can't remember which one, probably the F20.

Thanks kalel33. Nice. My little critter was a painted Turtle. Same idea with size.
I was thinking today?I wonder where it is? Hope that it found the new habitat that the builders built for those turtles. Has three cat and nine tails environment and water for them around a 60 acre site.
At least the builders did the right thing.
Cute photo.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
