This crew of turtles was hanging out in a suburban pond near me this past week. My wife had mentioned seeing them in recent weeks but I had little luck when I stopped by. Finally on this day I had a good of luck with seven on this log, two on a nearby one.
I think the biggest of these is a red eared slider while the rest are painted turtles.
I ended up taking tons of pics of them which is easy to do since they don’t move too fast. Haha. Someone recently asked me if I had any turtle pics, well now I do. 😉
Painted turtles are the most common turtle in North America and found in many fresh water ponds and waterways. I have seen them before but this was the first time I was able to get decent pics of any.
