Box turtles, like the large shell-less beings, come in all different colors, shapes and sizes.
Some box turtles are quite sizable – even stout. Other box turtles are smaller and more streamlined.
And some box turtles have three toes on their back legs – these are called (not surprisingly) “three-toed box turtles.”
Every so often, a particularly handsome male three-toed box turtle comes along, and when this happens, you really want to take their portrait.
But first, you need to find the right backdrop. Something naturalistic is ideal – woodsy, with a homey vibe that says “box turtle in his native environment.”
But you also want to pick something soft, plush, alluring – after all, you never know when a lady box turtle might be watching!
We call this photo shoot “Box Turtle with Fern,” aka “fern-licious.”
