Northern long-necked turtle

Here's my first shot of the Northern long-necked turtle (Chelodina oblonga) I found last night. It was in this exact position when I first spotted it though I saw it first from head on - I momentarily though for sure that I'd found a large water snake... Long-necked turtles indeed!
