A VISITOR WHO COMMANDED RESPECT

I've had a lot of wild life visit my back yard in Southampton, but never a Snapping Turtle.  This young lady was just passing through from her home in Fairy Lake which is just below my property.  I tried to feed her some cherry tomatoes from my garden but she was not the least bit interested.  She had other things on her mind, like maybe trying to find a good spot to lay her eggs.
"HEY!  OUTTA MY WAY BUSTER..."
Question:  How much room do you give a Snapping Turtle?  Answer:  "As much as it wants! -- especially if it is an unexpected intruder in your back yard.   

"THAT'S ME GONE...I CAN TAKE A HINT"
"...Besides, I'm heading for that cucumber patch over there.  Oh, right, turtles don't like cucumbers, but what the heck; I might find something else interesting."

"I'M CAMERA-SHY, DON'T YOU KNOW" 
"...Well, okay, go ahead and snap one.  I'm not going to hold this pose much longer.  Cheese!"
