Tortoise Coming up

Tortoise coming up for airHere's a rather unique tortoise that lives in a crater in Australia. They only exist in this water-filled crater in Queensland, who know's maybe they're aliens? Not only that, they have the unique ability of breathing through their rear as opposed to through the nose or mouth. A useful trait no doubt. And also the reason why these three images are hanging on my toilet wall at home, just thought you might appreciate the information...

Technically speaking these pictures aren't much, they're a bit grainy and the focus isn't spot on, but I so liked the colors and the combination of the three that I just had to post them, so hard luck. I took the pictures standing on a platform above the crater, so in order to penetrate the reflections on the water surface I used a circular polarizing filter, that takes away most of the reflection from the sun
