What a fantastic capture! I love the turtle and he is a big one! Great reflection for the day! Hope your weekend is good!Sylvia
Cute! I like wildlife in photos that fit the memes. Have a great weekend.
What a great shot, Bill! I can't imagine one often sees three turtles on a pier! I don't know the first thing about turtles and had never even heard/seen the words slider or cooter before. You won't believe this, but I spent 20 minutes looking it up, because after my own tortoise (land turtle) post some weeks ago, I thought it was rather fascinating. I think I learned that "turtle" is the most generic name for this reptile. I couldn't enlarge your photo enough to see the various identifiers, but you may want to look here: http://www.discoverlife.org/mp/20q?guide=Turtles. Super post for Weekend Reflections.
The one nearest the camera looks as though he/she is "galloping" off in high dudgeon. I wonder what's irritated it?I know absolutely nothing about turtles - we used to keep terrapins when the kids were youngand that's the closest I get to any knowledge!
This is the second blog I've visited today with turtles in it. I don't see them anywhere I visit so lovely to see them.
great find to see three together like this! it is hard to tell, the red slider mark is not very clear, but I think that is what the the two on the right might be. the dried out one may be a cooter as his back look flatter.
How about Moe, Larry, & Curly or Larry, Darrell & Darrell? But, you're probably looking for something different.Great capture. Have a wonderful week-end.
Seriously, I think they're all River Cooter Turtles.
They are enjoying the sunshine. Great pic Bill.
Great shot, love to watch the turtles enjoying the sun.
Just warming the blood!
