What you see when you have a camera!

We were having coffee by the river at Johnsonville when we spotted this little guy.

He was very tentative at my approach, and kept popping back into his shell. So I got the zoom lens out and moved back away from him, to encourage him to go forward again.

He headed off across the grass and unfortunately onto the road. We watched for a while, worried that any cars coming down would not see him, or might mistake him for just a rock or a shadow on the ground. So we gently picked him up and moved him over onto the grass in the direction he appeared to be heading.

He did allow me one close up! (with the zoom lens)

Yellow eyes watching me
