Look who woke up and came out to sun themselves yesterday...groggy and covered with mud and algae, but out and happily perching on every available surface!

Great capture & the bright blue water sets them off nicely - I'm used to seeing turtles in mostly dark greenish waters, which blends with their color. We really should change the term "piggyback" to "turtleback", since pigs don't do this...

Stupendous composition of colors, lighting effects and reflections in this capture of the turtles/tortoises/terrapins, Denise, all crowded aboard their trusty log raft, with their carapaces gleaming in the sun. Plus cool lily pads, to boot.
I can't believe the body-to-body tolerance they have for each other. Humans would freak out under similar circumstances.
