Giant Tortoise

Here is another image from my trip to the zoo last week. I was thrilled to see these giant tortoises for the first time, they are huge! The zoo has a great 4500 square foot exhibit for these guys and is perfect for getting photos, I hope I can return soon to focus on getting some better images. I decided to get in close and focus on the cool patterns in their shells and later on in Photoshop I converted it to B&W. I was kicking myself afterwards for shooting this image at f/8 instead of at least f/11 to get out some better details, I will not forget next trip!
Hope you like this one anyway.
