Juvenile snapping turtle...

I came across this mean-looking creature in the flower bed behind our Barn last month. He'd only just emerged from hibernation and was covered in dry mud. He wasn't very energetic and tolerated me taking a few photos. I'm constantly amazed by the beautiful creation here - even displayed in a mean-looking turtle!

 The turtle is visible towards the bottom of the image in the flower bed.
 Size perspective.
 Amazingly detailed shell.
That's a long tail!
