Beaver River/ Nature Notes

On the banks of Beaver River, Cannington, Ontario

A walk on a sunny day last week was made even nicer when my camera spotted this turtle sunning himself beside the Beaver River.  He/ she wasn't paying the slightest bit of attention to me!

Nearby, these plants were growing: forget-me-nots (Myosotis scorpioides), tufted vetch (Vicia cracca), fleabane (Erigeron philadelphicus), swamp milkweed (Asclepias  incarnata) and bullhead lily (Nuphar variegatum).

Nice collage.

see you there! said...

I love turtles and you captured a great one. That orange thing popping out of the water is Just Strange. An Alien Plant.

I had a turtle visit me the other morning. The dogs where barking like crazy and I went to look and there was a turtle on the other side of the fence from them. I turned him around and he headed out of the yard.
I love the great reflection on htat yellow flower, beautiful.

This is a lovely collage. Usually when I see the turtles, they jump back into the water before I can snap a shot. You're lucky he posed for you!

Wonderful shots from your walk and that's a great one of the turtle. I find turtle difficult to get in the right light.

Very cool collage of nature shots. The turtle was very cute. I looked for some at our local pond over the weekend and I could not find one. Good to come here and see this one.

It must take a long time or a lot of sun for the turtle to get warm up with it's thick shell. Great find.

Turtles are fun to photograph when they are out of their shell. This one has on a handsome shell. The flowers are beautiful. Nice collage.

That's a beautiful collage! Lucky you, to have found such a cooperative turtle.

I love all the flowers that you are able to ID...and of course the turtle. I noticed that my common milkweed is coming up well across the pond..but I haven't seen a single monarch yet.....it was a hard winter for them....Michelle
