Snapping Turtle and Leech Photographs

On July 26th, a large snapping turtle was headed for Hines Drive as I was passing by in my truck.  I photographed it and relocated it to a safer area.  It had two leeches attached to its shell, which I removed and photographed, then released in an area separate from where the turtle was released.  Click on the pictures below to see more photography of these creatures.
