From my Maskwa trip: the 11-year-old daughter of the guy that owned the cabin we rented found this snapping turtle on the riverbank. She’s the one holding it, so keep that in mind when you try to judge how small it is.
I used my Nikon 50mm with a +4 close-up filter. Depending on what definition you use, it qualifies as macro-photography. On a regular sized print (15x10cm, 6x4in), it would be very close to 1:1.
