These turtles have been photographed in a Botanical Gardens environment. Botanical Gardens are a great environment to photograph such animals. A 300mm lens and a Nikon D700 was used to capture the images.

The images were captured at Hervey Bay, Queensland.

With the image of the turtle swimming, a slight increase in contrast was required in post processing to improve the image.

The equipment used for these images was a Nikon D700 together with a 300mm f/4.0 telephoto lens. Care needs to be taken with a long lens such as this to ensure that a sufficiently high shutter speed is used to avoid any camera movement.
