Every year there is a Turtle Day, the first warm Spring day when the turtles come out to sun themselves. This year, Turtle Day was yesterday.


Doing turtle things!

*sigh*  I love Turtle Day.

I love seeing turtles sunning. There's something about it that says, "All's right with the world." (Well, this corner of it, anyway.)

Do you have a close-up lens for the camera? Or, are you using your phone? Never mind. We'll take the nature shots you have for us!

~~Silk, do you remember the little turtles they used to sell at Woolworth's? And you could buy the little plastic pool with the island in the middle with the plastic palm tree in it for your turtles? I had a turtle and the pool as a kid. I think that's where my love of turtles came from. I wish you could still buy those little turtles, dammit.

and Ginny, these were all taken using a zoom lens, because turtles will dive into the water as soon as they sense anything anywhere near, making it really hard to get physically close to them. Pics 2 and 3 were taken from so far away, unfortunately, that even the zoom couldn't really compensate. But in my turtle-addled mind, a blurry turtle pic is better than no turtle pic! ha.

Oh I LOVE your turtle day! I wish I had a turtle day. Best I get is a random turtle walking on our little side street once every couple of years.
