The turtles at Lake Morton are usually extremely skittish. If they see me across the lake the dive under water. For some reason they stayed out on the rocks in late December. Maybe they just liked the warm sun too much that morning. There were several on the rocks along the lake. They all have slightly different patterns on their face and neck. They didn’t seem to mind the ducks coming close or even me so I snapped a lot of pictures of them that morning.
Hello Dina, great series on the turtles. They are skittish around me too. So glad you got these shots. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Have a happy weekend!
Have a wonderful week-end Dina. Great shots of the turtles.
We have a wonderful park with a boardwalk built out into the marsh to see the herons and the turtles so I try to make it down there at least once a month. I have never been able to figure out why on some occasions the turtles are more approachable than others.
So glad you were able to get these photos! Yep, looks like they needed that sunshine too much to be shy! 🙂
