Turtle at the campus pond
There is a little pond near one of the dorms on the UofA campus which is a favorite place for students moving out of their dorm rooms to deposit gold fish and turtles that they have kept as pets. One of the turtles suns himself on a rock on the edge of the pond in this image taken with my 75-300mm lens at 170mm focal length on my 70D. The exposure was 1/180 seconds at f/11 at ISO 400 which helped greatly with the focus with a moderate depth of field.
