These are vulnerable species and after a long 15yrs found one and rejoiced. Habitat loss and hunting for their meat has taken to this status.

I really enjoy seeing photographs of the less noticed animals. Lovely composition and a beautiful reflection make this photograph for me.

Congrats on the find! Really an interesting turtle, pretty patterns on the head. Is it as small as it looks?

What a wonderful (reflective ) view-just beautifully presented. Wow- 15 years! Congratulations on the find. And a sad tale to tell too.....
