Nope, we found four of them in a garden and took some pictures quick before relocating them into a nearby stream :)

Omgosh I can't believe how tiny this turtle is. XD Its size just blew me away, leaving me in question as to whether it was a toy figure or the real deal. I completely agree with both ~fr31g31st and !Rhy-wen's critique. I usually don't say this, but... what they said. XD Haha They pretty much summed everything up to what I wanted to comment on this photo. Wonderful shot! :aww:
