Turtle Time

Three young turtles basking. An older turtle dipped deep into the water as soon as my dog Bea and I came on the scene, but these younger ones were unperturbed. The shiny white streaks are the sun hitting little rivulets in the water made by a breeze. Yesterday I saw a larger turtle being followed by a smaller one in the water, but I didn't have my phone with me to get a picture. Wherever the big one went, the little one went, desperate to get the big one's attention, nipping at its feet or swimming around and meeting it head on. When they are looking up and the sun hits them, the turtle eyes look like little white shiny beads.
