Nature Walks – Turtles In the Sun

My turtles are back. So far, I have mostly seen the big snapping turtles, with my old guys front and center. My big snapping turtles are rumored to be over 100 years old, and they still look great. They have been busy sunning themselves on the rocks and logs, or just hanging out on the water’s surface. They are definitely making their presence known and I am glad for it too. I love seeing all my turtles out and about.

Mr. Turtle is just chilling on the water’s surface, catching a few rays while he can.

And finally, my red-eared sliders are coming out too.

He needed a little help from Mr. Turtle though, and they were hanging out on the log together. This is the first time I have seen both turtle types together like this. I guess they really are friends, though they are practicing their social distancing at the moment.

This friendly turtle is always dressed perfectly for the seasons. Today, he is sporting his summer wear and greeting all those who pass by.
