Tortoise enjoying the summer sun

The photo is showing "Little Foot", an original Greek tortoise, after an opulent strawberry lunch. Her mouth is still red from the fruit juice. Most people think these reptiles are slow, lazy animals. Those people have not seen a turtle charged up by the summer sun! The warm temperatures do wonders! This turtle was quite nosy and wanted to take a very close look at the iPhone camera. She ran so fast towards me that my photo unintentionally turned into a close-up.
