    I don’t know which I love more, the turtles on the log or the reflection of the trees! Love this photo… It looks silent!

    • Two friends and I went back to the Gardens yesterday for a talk on blacksmithing and the beautiful ironwork of the south. After, we decided to walk around this lovely pond to get a better look at these turtles. We couldn’t get real close because there is no path to that area and there are signs for alligators and snakes. When I see those signs, I stay on the path and try the zoom on my camera. I look at them lined up there and wonder if they stay there all night or do they start lining up again the next morning. 🙂


  3. They look like Dominos! So cute!

    Awww! The “bumps” are undoubtedly sunning themselves, and I suspect they “go home” for the night – would be fascinating to watch that process, but it would have to be while wearing a snake and alligator proof suit! This is just so cool!

  8. Oh, I love when our river is full of those baby snapping turtles. I remember one year when there were tens of thousands of them on rocks, on wood, literally EVERYWHERE. I’m assuming that many of them don’t make it, otherwise the water would be completely full of snapping turtles. GREAT shot.

    Oh so cute… Can’t see the markings but a good guess would be yellow-bellied sliders that are numerous there. If the pond wasn’t inhabited by gaters, I’d love to launch a kayak and enjoy those calm waters and warm sun. Super photo!

  13. Made me laugh. It looks to me with my crazy outlook on life that all the fat turtles are on one end of the log and are making it sink. 🙂


  14. From a distance, with the beautiful reflection, that reminds me of a giant crocodile sunning himself in the water. They like to rest with their jaws open.

    Since the turtle has long been my symbol (even though it’s faster than I am), this photo is personal! I love it. What a perfect portrait of calm. Thank you!

    That’s quite a bale of turtles! (I had to look up the correct collective noun–so I learned something from your post!)
