Love this. Great image!

Nice pics! I never have luck with turtles, they always see me coming and submerge...

Nick

Nice capture!

Inger-M

They certainly do deserve to shine! To me, it would be so exotic to see these in the wild. Great shots!

John McDevitt

Great shot. The low angle makes it all the more powerful.

Oh, they do deserve it, Sallie. They're wonderful. And a super photo.
I must convince my husband to visit turtle territory this summer instead of dragging me off to the other side of the world yet again. (I know, I shouldn't complain, but it would be nice to head west with the dog in the car on an extended photo-hunt).

Great nature study photo, the lighting is beautiful. Thanks for your kind comments.

Big turtles ! Here in France, a few years ago, these turtles was sod when they were very little (4 inches). But they grew bigger and bigger ! People threw them away in rivers and ponds where they eat fishes and all what they could find. Now it's forbidden to sell or buy them..

Hi there - nice shot. I have never managed to get a good picture of any of our turtles. So, well done.

PS: is there any significance to the two 'i's in the title of your blog?

This is a fabulous shot, Sallie - I forget what a group of turtles is called...oh - I remember. A "bale" of turtles!

Pam

Turtles just love to sun bath. I wonder if that is why they are so brown?
Nice shots Sallie,
Pam :)

Fantastic image you've shared. I love it. We're not seeing to many fresh water turtles around here, here of late because of the extreme drought. So this is a special treat.

Oh, yes, indeed, they deserve to shine in the spotlight or sunlight. I love how turtles always find the time to bask in the sun.

NatureFootstep

They do blend in with their background, don't they? That's great for their survival!

dianne

I love their wrinkly little necks and their antics

Stretching their necks and faces to the sun! A happy hopeful photo!

Lady Fi

Oh, what adorable critters!

Cute! I loved it when we had two turtles! They were so fun to watch! They started as tiny little things that grew into needing a small outside pond!

Turtles are so much fun ... especially out sunning themselves. Happy Critter Day!

Janis

Nice shot. We have some turtles in our canals here...but I haven't seen any on the banks lately!

Linda

What a great shot! Seems every time I try to photograph turtles, they jump in the water! They seem to be doing some kind of exercise!

Great capture, Sallie! I love the turtles too. Have a wonderful weekend!

Turtles are always fun to watch! I wonder what they're looking up with their stretched "necks".

It looks like a turtle convention. Great shot!
