Today is my sweet Kroten’s birthday…well, it is not actually her birthday, it’s more like her arrival day…but i consider it as the day she was being ‘born’ inside my heart.
To know her full story when we met, please go to her blog Kame & Kroten’s Blog, she wrote her story as her birthday post.
It didn’t matter how many turtles she was looking at because what matter was which one was looking back at her. (excerpt from her post)
To continue the tradition I have done since last year with Kame’s birthday, I am going to share you my top-5 pictures of Kroten that I like so much.
I took this picture on August 15, 2009. I put her on a glass table and teased her with a pellet. I love that serious expression on her face, it is as if she was judging whether the pellet is okay to eat or not. Her reflection on the table makes it look more dramatic.
#4 Sleep Peacefully
On May 28, 2009 , the most forgettable thing happened between me and Kroten…for the first time in her life, she slept on my leg! I was so deeply touched by her act. Even when I put a ‘blanket’ on top of her she still sleep soundly. I let her sleep as long as I could keep my leg from feeling sore. I felt bad when I had to move her because I couldn’t feel my leg anymore. Sorry, sweetheart.
I love this picture, I took it on May 23, 2010. When I aimed my camera at her, she immediately put her cutest curious face. Look ate the way she looks at me, that is the same look when she looked at me for the first time (read this story), it was impossible not to fall in love with that expression.
She was the shyest turtle I have ever had (at least on her 1st year). These series of pictures were taken somewhere in 2008 (there was no record on the pictures). Although she looks so shy, she still looks so cute under that towel 😉
#1 Picture Perfect
I adore this picture!! I was so lucky when I took this picture, the light was perfect and it brought all her beauty out. In my eyes, this picture looks like a painting. She is so beautiful!! don’t you agree? I took this picture on January 17, 2010.
