Firstly can I say wow?

I just did, this image is very well shot and the things in particular I like is the amount of detail captured in the image right down to seeing how much the reptile has had to drink (but looking how 'wet the tongue is)

The reptiles shell stands out as it's color is vivid and not lost in the picture even though it is not an immediate realization as I feel it's not the focal point of the picture rather the reptiles neck and head is which is well captured by the way.

I love how the lettuce seems so close to me by properly took a lot of effort from the reptile to get to and it still seems slightly too far away for it to chew off.

the thermostat? to the left is somewhat distracting me and is the only thing I would take out of this image even though it is out of focus the yellow and red of the ?thermostat stand out too much for me, If it did not have these colors on the thermostat and it was still in the picture I wouldn't have minded!

Lastly I love how the subject of the reptile food bowl and salad are in focus but the wall and things to the far left are not really adds depth to this photo.
What do you think?

EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! I love tortoises. I bring in fruits and veggies for the ones at work. I like to handfeed them. They have little muffin mouths :3
