Turtles Everywhere.....



It was an uncharacteristic 90 degrees here on Tuesday and I went kayaking on the Sabattus River again. The wildlife was really enjoyng the weather, I observed a total of 47 painted turtles
and another couple of snappers.

It seems that any place there is a branch sticking out there is a turtle on it! Even down here John!

Oh my so many turtles! I've never seen SO many turtles in one place.

Don't you love it? I took a bunch of new turtle photos, too...they were out by the hundreds on Friday. Isn't it time to switch your photo to the kayak :-)

If I could swim I think I'd go kayaking. What a great way to enjoy nature. :-) I had a friend get me into one in about two feet of water. I must have really trusted him. LOL!

Love the turtles. They always crack me up lined up on a log like that.

That's an amazing number of turtles--must be a superb productive ecosystem.

47!! Wow. I thought it was something when I saw about ten of them the other day. I'm thinking of saving those shots for my Watery Wednesday. Great shots.
