[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The zoo, and reflections of man. The turtle had moss or fungus growing on it's shell. It shared the tank with crocs. How pleasant life could be in his situtaion, I do not know. He gets meals without effort. People from all over the world can see what he is like. Children can see nature in fake surroundings, but better than never seeing it. Man has changed nature's habitats, taken them over, changed them, often ruined them. Maybe only zoos and aquaruims will exist in the future, in which the creatures can live. It is up to man to decide what happens to the earth. If there are no animals, no insects, left, then will there eventually be no crops to feed the man? All parts of life on earth are tied to each other, with invisible threads. You kill one animal forever, everything attached to it's life suffers also. I hope the zoos create a love of nature in all who visit,to see the wonders that are on earth, and a desire to protect them.

Interesting image Gloria. I wonder if the crocs ever snap at the turtles. I think your hopes are the hopes of all nature lovers. Pity there are so many greedy industrialists out there who don't care for nature.Perhaps future generations will be more aware. Thanks for sharing.

I must say you have some interesting zoo pictures. Nice to see a turtle below water, the way everything hangs below the shell. It's also almost an experimental photo with the reflections of people and that yellow light (sunlight?) in the background. Nice.

Gloria, Interesting perspective! I like the theme of your notes for this..Thanx for posting!

He is floating by very quitly and I would have done so too. That croc has big teeth, and lots of them too. Very nice capture and I love your note.

Thanks for posting

A very good capture and quite an unusual sight too!
The croc looks to have quite a sinister smile and the turtle a worried look,so would I!
Great note too.
Well done.

Never smile at a crocodile! Nice picture. A polarizer lens would remove those nasty glass reflections. I love this pic. The turtle & the crocs is a very unusual combination..
