Cruising With The Turtles

Turtles Getting On Board

One by one, the turtle was getting on board this plank of wood. It was a beautiful day for a cruise around the pond at Metro Park.

Turtles Aboard
Since the turtles loved sun tanning, the plank of wood didn't move much! It waited for all turtles to board the ship going nowhere.

Late Comers
I spent quite a bit of time watching this group of turtles, waiting for the cruise ship to take off, but the turtles just took a dip in the water when they got hot, and back to their tanning salon.

  1. oh my, they look so cute! as a child I have been fascinated about turtles..the way they'd hide their heads and then magically pop them out and their slow mom used to tell us the story of the monkey and the turtle each night to put us to sleep...I love that photo here where the plank did not move much and waited for all turtles to board :-)

  2. clear and crisp images, Icy! i love the way you described the plank of wood as ship. enjoy your weekend! :)

  3. Icy, they are just so cute. I love watching them. These are great shots with really cool detail.

  4. The turtles seem to enjoy their journey on the ship to nowhere. :)

  5. Looks like the guys have their own private deck in the pond. Great shots Icy!

  6. They're so cute, enjoying the sunshine!

  7. So cute, we have a couple of turtles that frequent the pond in our neighborhood that like to sun on the platform of the fountain but are really camera shy.

  8. Great shots of the turtles, always love to see them enjoying the sun. Have a great day.

  9. They need a couple of little oars to get it going! How cute.

    Thanks for sharing at YSB this week. xo
