Pond Terrapin

It is not all about birds. When on trips we find all kinds of things. For example, here is a European Pond Terrapin Emys orbicularis that was crossing, slowly, a road in the Kiskunsag in Hungary. I picked it up and moved it as it was in real danger of getting hit. Of course, it thanked me, as they do, by withdrawing into its shell.
