Yertle the Turtle

When I was young my father brought home two box turtles for us kids. We named them Myrtle and Yertle the Turtles.. This fella was wandering across the street and I had to stop and help him along. It is always a rule to follow.. Take them off the street into the direction they are traveling. He was not annoyed in the least for the little help and rewarded me with a nice profile shot..
Great shot!

He looks very grateful. Whenever I do this, they curl themselves back into their shell and sulk, so you are so lucky to have this thankful look for your lovely pic.
