Hi Jairo
Shucks, are these turtles(?) on some kind of hormonal treatment program?
Great capture of the moment. Very nice composition and point of view (POV). Good colours, depth of field (DOF) and exposure. The only small nit might be that (in my opinion) you could have reduced the brightness a tad in post processing (PP).
However, it was very well done.
Thanks for sharing (TFS).

Tartaruga pescoço de cobre ou cágado. Tirou a foto no momento certo. Boa composição. Só acho que faltou um pouquinho mais de saturação, vou tentar um WS.

Dear Jairo
Nice photo of two pairs of tortoises mating. In South Africa most tortoise seem to grab the female's throat...

I like the soft colours, but a bit of sharpening would improve the photo.

Thanks for sharing.
Warm greetings from the Tzaneen Dam in Limpopo, South Africa
