Yesterday (Friday) was a lovely day and I guess this painted turtle thought so too. It was out sunning itself on a log. My first turtle of 2015!
A real poser, it turned around for a second view
This is the only one I saw but if the weather stays warm enough perhaps I'll see more the next time I visit this marsh.
I am linking to Saturday Critters HERE.
That's a very happy looking turtle!
Such a colourful and vicious little creature!
cute, we saw some in the garden centre last week
You might not see one today. Brr. :)
So happy for you and the turtle to have a nice warm sunny day. Love the turtle pic's. Happy Easter! Thank you for linking up! Have a great weekend!
he is a beauty, but i was a tad disappointed, when i saw the title i thought we would be seeing you in a bathing suit...
He's been waiting a long time for this chance! My own turtle has finally awakened from his hibernation, too.
such a cutie. :)
He really stuck his neck out for you! Nice job...certainly a colorful little critter. Where do turtles go during the winter to keep warm. And don't say "Florida." I'll know you just spoofing me! :)
My first time to see a "Painted" turtle. Wow, didn't even know they existed. Nice work on capturing the color.
Ah, what a colorful fellow!! He does seem to be enjoying the sun, hope he gets some more soon!! Have a great weekend!!
He looks happy to be out in the warm sunshine. Probably shaking in his shell today if it's chilly there like it is here! Great shots!
Cute turtle pics!
Saw my first one of the season a couple of weekends ago. I think he/she must have been pushing the season a little, though.
It must be Spring if this cutie is out!
You got some great pictures of him/her.
Beautiful critter! Happy Easter!
Wisest and cutest turtle ever!
Always looking for some sun!
It is exciting to see the first critter since winter started. Yours is lovely!
Amazing colouring on his neck EG.
P.s. I like potato chips too :)
Magnifique tortue !
So cute,Happy Easter.
I like the colours on his or her head.
Wow, a beautiful view of the Painted Turtle. You captured him nicely. Thanks for sharing.
I'm always thrilled to see the first one of the year - my sightings are in Wychwood park which is shady so may take a while to warm up enough for them!
This last picture, with his head up, looks like he is almost praying; so happy to be in the sun. I love the little bits of red on him.
He does look charming.
How beautiful with the painted stripes. Great photos.
Very pretty and colorful turtle.
He is a handsome little fella.
wonderful close-ups, providing a good up close look at the color and skin/shell detail!!!
Nice-looking turtle having a great day!
I particulary love the first close up shot. HAPPY EASTER.
It's a beauty. Ready for some warmer weather I'm sure.
Wow. A turtle... ours are frozen. And I have a half dozen frozen goldfish, too. I'm so sad. Several frozen and dead frogs. I'll have to think about a heater.
how fun, I've never seen a turtle roaming about. Only at the zoo.
