Turtle near a waterfall.

Out in a pool - the rare Yellow lined Box turtle near me in SaiKung. The Chinese box turtle (simplified Chinese: 食蛇龟; traditional Chinese: 食蛇龜; pinyin: shìshéguī; literally: "Snake-eating turtle"), also known as the Yellow-margined box turtle, or Golden-headed turtle.

(Cuora flavomarginata) A species of Asian box turtle was next to a small waterfall in a pool near me in Sai Kung. I used the polarizer filter (see related post) to cut the glare, and also slow the shutter speed to below 1 second to blur the water behind, hoping he would not move….he stayed put the whole time i was moving around him.
