Painted Turtle - 1

I always check for painted turtles swimming along the shoreline or sunning themselves on the fallen logs. As their name suggests they have colourful markings and are the smallest turtle species at this reserve. The snapping turtle and blanding’s turtle (both of which I’ve featured in earlier blog posts) are larger. We’re looking forward to seeing some hatchlings, it shouldn’t be too long now!

  3. Love the featured image — looks like she (he) is doing a balancing act on just the shell, head raised, with a look-at-me attitude. 🙂

  4. Both are great, but I especially like the one with the turtle’s reflection.
