I Kill

True Bavarian, a member of Flickr, is a gifted photographer. After stumbling across his work, I got his permission to post his pictures. I will be showcasing some of my favorites of his over the next week or so.

Check out his matamata turtle. These South American soft-shelled turtles lie in wait for passing prey. Their name means "I kill, I kill" in Spanish (mata mata). How do you say, "I die, I die" in Spanish? That's the kind of fish I would be if I saw this smiling face lunging at me.
