He seems to say, "No, I insist, after you, I'll be awhile." Good doorstop! I had to look twice!

I'll answer your question at my blog in my Friday post!

Kay said...

Well done! I like this shot!

Sylvia K said...

Oh, what a fun shot!! I agree with William as to what Mr Turtle was saying!!

Lois said...

I want a doorstop like that! I like what you did here.

Cute doorman!

Sharon Anck said...

some very fun effects on this shot. I feel the whoosh of air as Mr. Speedy passes.

Would love to know the turtle's backstory. Does he frequent the place? Great photo!

You are absolutely right about the Phoenix Open this weekend too. I completely forgot about that which is a shame because golf is decidedly more civilized than football. I'm certainly glad I don't have to fly anywhere this week. I hear our airport is extremely crowded right now.

One thing about turtles. They know how to find the sun.

Judy said...

I thought it was a real one for a second. That is a perfect effect for this photo.

VP said...

I like the effect: this is very nice!

I do not understand how you managed to take a picture with his speed

Halcyon said...

Oh Lowell... you are really a cut up! My husband is now wondering why I'm laughing out loud. :)

Slow and steady wins the race. (Or at least that's what the turtle and I hope.)

Love how you did this picture (effects, that's the word I want!)

Clearly not in a hurry!

Aimeecakes said...

Haha I thought he was real for a second there - Love turtles, they're so cute!

Aimee and I were watching the turtles at the zoo last weekend and they actually do move surprisingly fast.. When there's food involved :)

How clever, Lowell! I’ve learned the sense of speed is made by the blurred background.
