Midland painted turtle - Algonquin Provincial Park
He's so vain he probably thinks this post is about him! (Apologies to singer Carly Simon)
Isn't he colourful?
FYI: Added later...
Yep, that's a snail on its back!
I am linking to Saturday Critters HERE.
Magnificent shots and reflections. Have a wonderful weekend.
Won't be long before these characters turn in for the season.
they sure named this gorgeous guy correctly. i think this might be the prettiest turtle i have ever seen. super shots
You could have used those pics for James reflections! Fab photos, I love turtles !
He sure is! Gorgeous !!
ooohhhhh these are remarkable. they could be "flipped" i do believe, like texwisgirl does ;)
Colourful and beautiful.
so darn clean! ours are always so gunky. :)
You had me tricked at the start. Could there be 2 one up, one down? hahahahaha
So sharp and perfect pictures! Your song line made me laugh.
Oh WOW!!!! The reflection is just as clear as the real thing! And I love the red along his edge. His head is UP, so he is posing for you to show you his best side! I think that is the sign of a happy turtle (can turtles be happy?) because he is not hiding in his shell.
Fabulous photos and reflections!
As fabulous as he looks he has to be feeling vain! What a capture too.
Really beautiful photos of this turtle. That song sure takes me back. :) What is that lump on the rear of his shell?
Oh he is gorgeous! Beautifully taken EG.
What a handsome fellow...and great reflections! Beautiful shots!
That is one beautiful animal. More so as we don't have any turtles to see here in the UK.
Love the reflection / what wonderful shots! :)
Wow, fantastic! :-)
You really love turtles!
Awesome captures of a handsome guy, EG!! You do have wonderful critters in your world!! Thanks for sharing! Have a great weekend!!
He has a right to be vain!
He is a beauty indeed..perfect reflection, and btw thanks EG, I'm just off to bed and I've got that song in my head :)
Beautiful Turtle photos, does it have a snail giving a ride?
fabulous photos and reflections! Is that a snail on his back??
What amazing clarity! He seems to have a small hitch-hiker on board.
It is so wonderful to see a turtle out sunning in the wild!
Such a colourful turtle in this excellent mirror image!
Cute turtles. i love the reflections.
Terrapin? He/she is quite attractive and colorful and you did a super job on his/her portrait. I like the colors and your photos are tack-sharp.
Email coming your way.

Perfect mirror images EG. He's a good looking turtle!
A wonderful observation.
