The Sad Truth by Herculesi The Sad Truth by Herculesi
This specific tortoise was very photogenic. And it was also pretty cooperative as it let me get VERY close to it without scaring or making it angry. Its look was a bit depressing though :(

If you like it, please +Watch for more :)

What a handsome little thing. You must be very good with animals to be able to get such a great shot! The emotion in this piece is heavy, a little sobering. I like that though.

Yes, they are so old that it's a bit sad. They look tired and depressed. :(
