Weekly photo challenge: scale

Giant Galapagos Tortoise

I don’t know whether you think this Galapagos tortoise is cute or more of a strange, slow moving, ancient curiosity. He could move surprisingly quickly if tempted by anything succulent.

He came to mind when I saw this week’s photo challenge is scale, for two reasons – after all his skin is pretty scaly!

And as he’s pictured in a state of tortoise bliss from having his head rubbed, the man’s hand helps give us a sense of his giant size.
