Defensive

I came across this Midland Painted Turtle on a day that wasn’t too warm or sunny. It was rather defensive when I leaned down to get a better look.

Although the species is not listed under the Species At Risk Act it is designated by the Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada as a Species of Special Concern. So it was good to see a seemingly healthy individual.
