Cool! I like turtles. We had one in our yard the other day, too. 🙂
My BFF is a turtle fanatic! Every Christmas I get her something with a turtle on it. Maybe I should print some of my turtle pics for her and frame them. Thanks for the idea! 🙂
Pretty! Very blue waters…

Thank you very much! 🙂
Fantastic; a couple of great shots, Lisa👏 Do you see them regularly or was this lucky timing?
We see turtles all the time. I have lots of turtle shots over the years. Different species of turtles and tortoises.
That’s awesome 😃
Doesn’t look like that turtle was easy to spot – nice job.
The water was pretty clear because it is spring fed not too far from where we were. Thanks!
Turtles are amazing. Now is the time of year we find them on the road. I always stop the car and move them across. They are looking for nesting spots.
Yes, they tend to be seen on the road. This same day, we had to stop the car so a snapping turtle could move on across. He stalled so I started to get out. Thank goodness he moved on with my movement. Don’t want to get close to those and try to help them out. 🙂
We have Alligator Snapping Turtles. Best left alone.
Yeah, I wouldn’t mess with those either. When I do see a turtle move in the middle a roadway, I will stop if I can and lend a hand. I have alcohol wipes in my car all the time so keeping good hygiene allows me to be helpful. No snappers though and I leave snakes go at their own pace. LOL!
The Wakulla is fantastic. Great shots!
Thank you! Yes it is. We wanted to go into the State Park, but it was closed when we were there back in April. We look forward to going back and staying a few days. 🙂
I keep pestering my husband to go stay in the lodge for night. He says we live too near there and he’d rather stay in his own bed. I say that’s not the point.
My hubby would be game for that. Only after this pandemic is done which doesn’t seem like anytime soon. 😊
great captures on clear water! 🙂
Thank you. I wasn’t sure if they would turn out. It was super bright outside that day. 🙂
Thank you. 😊
Love these! Great shots of that turtle!
Thank you very much! It was in the middle of the shut down in April and it was just great to be outside where there were no people. 🙂 Maybe, he missed the people too! LOL! 🙂
Happy turtle spreading joy! 😊 It looks like it was a beautiful day!
Oh, it was gorgeous! We had one cool day of temps this week & went for a hike & birding on Tuesday. Got to get it when we can. Tomorrow will be back up to 90. Ugh! I got a new turtle pic & video on that little hike. I’ll share that at some point. 🙂
