04.27.2021 Turtle Tuesday

I don’t get to photograph many species of turtles so this probably won’t be a regular thing.  But often when I say something like that more happens so we’ll see.

These were also sunning last Saturday as i walked the rail trail.  Different log and different individuals but similar behavior.

Maybe I’ll get lucky this year and photograph some wood, box, or others of the ten turtle species we have here, some of which are becoming rare and threatened locally.

    The wood looks a bit like a polar bear sprawled out on the water with the turtles having a ride. I’m enjoying Turtle Tuesday for as long as it lasts!! Nice finds!

    • Guess I just don’t have he imagination everyone else does. All I saw was a log, oddly shaped, but a log. Bob saw a crocodile, you see a polar bear. 🙂 I’ll try to do a few more, maybe out of the archives if nothing current comes along. Thanks, Lori!

    When it comes to the art of relaxing we humans can learn a lot from the turtles. Great capture, Steve!

  6. The perch that these turtles are on reminded me of a starfish.

    The turtles look like they’re basking atop a larger turtle with its limbs extended to catch some extra rays.
