  1. Wow… excellent click 🙂

  2. Very peaceful and “floaty”, great shot!

  3. A charming turtle in his own special element. Oh, how I envy the pace of his life right now. 🙂

    He’s so gorgeous! And you always manage to capture something “other” than the actual subject – I’m not sure what exactly it is, but there’s always something very unique to you about the colour and shapes you find..

  5. What a beauty. Hw far is this swamp from your house? Lots of beauty there.

  6. Very beautiful is the turtle. I like orange spots on the shell, if it were painted!
    Thank you for sharing!
    You have a wonderful weekend, dear Elena!
    Big hugs, much love, Stefania! 🙂

  7. What a great photograph Elena. We have a pond behind us and one across the street, and these guys used our yard as their pathway! And every year yard a baby turtle ends up in the pool, and every once in a while a very large adult turtle will be taking a swim too, and in both cases very funny watching us try to get them out. Wonderful colors on the turtle you have here!

  8. I went..”Ooo”…such a cute little fella!! 🙂

  9. A painted turtle by an artist…very fitting! I love seeing these guys bask when they come up from the mud. Haven’t seen one yet this year.

  10. He’s a colourful little fellow. Love that you captured his reach.

  11. Striking presence, Casual but undeterred they float like dudes on Harley. Too much, right? I know…

  12. A stranger to me, but what a wonderful pattern! I like the colour harmony within the picture – those touches of orange that give a little lift.

  13. Oh, how cute 🙂

  14. Oh, you found one! : ) It’s a bit too cold here – freezing rain, snow and ice pellets.
    That little foot is so sweet. Did you have a polarizing filter on your lens whe you made this picture? It’s great!

    • Yes, I did use a polarizing filter. But, it popped off the lens into the swamp just after shooting this picture. Time for a new filter and more attention to fitting it better:) The swamp is just FULL of turtles sunning. I spied only one little frog. We had a very warm snap and now a cooler one, but nothing like snow and ice. I do adore turtles. Hope you’ll see some soon!

  15. Elena, I simply LOVE turtles. Maybe, just maybe, you might find a turtle inspiring enough to do a watercolor of one. 😉
