Turtle Design

I’m here, late at night, editing pictures for my photography class. I took a picture at the zoo yesterday of a turtle. A rather ugly turtle by normal “Cute Turtle” standards, but in looking at the picture something struck me about him. Look at him. Look closely. Look past the weirdness, past the odd little chin-growths. Look at the stripe.

Zoo 197

Notice how the black stripe separates the white skin from the brown – like it was painted on. Now look how the stripe goes through his eye. Right through his eye, and it lines up perfectly. Just another example of the amazing design throughout all nature, even in the ugliest animals.

This was a very random late night post... :p
