    Regardless of where it was taken, that sea turtle is a cutie.

    I couldn't agree more. I don't care where it was taken, just posting to others who were discussing it!

    I love sea turtles❤️

    I'm not doubting that the turtle in the photo is awesome....

    I remember the previous rules that the tortoise had to be YOURS and still living. Which is why I thought that was a tricky slip in. But since Yvonne shared the new changed rule, then hey, my little poke is irrelevant ;)

    All I can say is that after seeing them full sized I have only managed to narrow my potential vote pool down to 15 photos so far. This is going to be much harder than I anticipated......

    I agree, 32 photos is a lot to narrow down! They all look great!

    The only thing that sucks about this is my picture has already lost a few votes from last time :(

    The number if the corresponding picture is above that picture right? Like if there was a number 42 number 42 is the picture under number 42?

    Don't feel badly. There's some pretty stiff competition this year. I don't see a bad picture at all. They're all top notch.

    I didn't mean this year, I mean from the last thread :(
    My number for some reason is a little harder to see on mobile.

    32 photos and two posts of photos in the contest is a lot. I'm glad that so many entered to make it "stiff competition" lol

    It's becoming clear that I should have entered one of my much more photogenic tortoises.
    That's a tough crowd!

    Don't get discouraged. I'm in the same boat as you. I thought I entered a great photo but now I'm thinking damn, what did I do wrong. A part of me is hoping its just being over looked because it's in the second post and not the first, lol.
