Swamp Spring

This lovely box turtle newly emerged from hibernation, crawled away from his winter home, still sleepy.


A tiny painted turtle having a look around.

Lots of mating activity.

  1. Haha, in the first image, the turtle looks like it does NOT want to be bothered. As though he’s saying, “go away”. But then again, most turtles just appear that way.

  2. Very beautiful are the pictures, dear Elena. I love tortoise –unfortunately I can only see in the zoo. They say turtle bring prosperity!
    Thank you so much for sharing such beautiful images that touch!
    Have a wonderful day, dear Elena. Big hugs, with love, Stefania! 🙂
