STOPS ALONG THE WAY

PAINTED TURTLES (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

24 Comments

These painted turtles look pretty put out. In other reserves where the turtles tend to dive for cover when you approach, these turtles stay put and glare. Like frogs they blend in well to their surroundings. On a windless day if I see duckweed floating on the surface of the water, chances are a turtle underneath it is propelling it along.

  7. There’s something endearing about turtles. Maybe it’s the fact that they carry their house on their back (a child’s point of view that has been drilled into us long ago).
