Another Big Snapper

LAST WEEK I POSTED A GREAT PHOTO OF GRANDMOTHER SNAPPING TURTLE, from the footbridge over our little channel. Got over 800 likes and many a good comment! Well. Out in the canoe yesterday, I floated over another creature, about 10” under the water. This photo, full of reflections and sunlight, is almost like a fine impressionistic painting. Hard to make out. But something is there—someone. Can you see who? Your thoughts are welcomed!…. Ok, no luck? It’s another big snapper. Under the reflections. Right forearm and claws, light-colored, pointing at 11:00 o’clock. Left at 9:30. Head in between. Dark shell arching from 12:30 to 6:30. And there is a light-colored branch across the dark shell. Can you see it? I think this is fine natural art.
