This afternoon I had some time to get outside, and did this drawing, after a warmup of a couple other drawings. I came across a large snapping turtle on the canal bank. He didn't look alive. His eyes were sunken in, and closed, and his shell was covered with dried mud. I poked the turtle gently with a stick. Of course, he was alive, and now a bit annoyed. He slowly slipped back into the water stirring up a cloud of mud from the bottom.
