Painted turtles can be tough. The slightest noise and all you here is "splash-splash-splash"

One of my first of a painted turtle early last year.

Natrix natrix
August 7th, 2009 AD, all pictures in public domain

Natrix natrix is one of my favourite snakes. It's very easy to handle and more or less harmless. There is one nasty thingy about it though - its skunk-like stink, which increases the more you scare it. So I'm always very gentle to the snake and try to avoid swapping hands*, because that way the smell gets onto the camera and the equipment. The stink is very easy to wash off when you are in the wild and forgot your soap, or maybe not.

Right: Full size - 3,714 x 2,486 pixels - 24 bits per pixel - 4.7 MB (4,866,109 bytes)
Note, on the left picture one can see the reflection of the photog holding the snake in one hand and the camera in the other in the snake's eye.

All images: 1/160 sec (0.00625), f/11, ISO 200, 105 mm, Flash fired (off camera, SB-900, 1/16 -0.7EV)
Lens used: AF-S VR Micro-NIKKOR 105mm f/2.8G IF-ED
All full-sized images contain the EXIF data

*In snake-handling terminology "swapping hands" means you change the hand that holds the snake.
