Ladybird Johnson Wildflower Center, Austin, TX. Sony nex5r and Schneider Kreuznach Componar 50/4.5 enlarger lens. The turtles have grown accustomed to the passers by at the entrance to the Center, and they seem to enjoy their theatrics.

Painted turtle. Miner`s Marsh.

Their breeding season begins in the spring with many males chasing a female. The male that catches up to the female strokes her head, encouraging her to follow. Mating occurs on the bottom of the waterway.

This huge Snapping Turtle was trying to make its way across the paved path, perhaps to find a location to lay her eggs (though I have no idea if it's a female for sure). Taken June 8, 2013 along Musagetes Trailway at RIM Park in Waterloo, Ontario.

For the turtle lovers: Maine Animal Farm, Gray Maine July 2007

The turtle swam out from the lake and chased away some ducks that were sitting near.

Found this little guy at work this morning. I set him atop a nickel for size comparison.

I've been removing files from my computer and came across this. Like the title says....its slow going.

 

Have a great Thursday and I will be around as available!

 

Nancy loves turtles...so I dedicate this to her! Thanks for your encouragement, Nancy turtlemom4bacon's photostream

 

Ho incontrato solo tre volte una Emys orbicularis, testuggine palustre europea, e solo in una avevo la macchina fotografica. Il risultato è alquanto scadente (e non sono riuscita a levare la dominate bluastra) e lo scatto è stato fatto di frettissima data l'evidente paura nei miei confronti della povera creatura, che già si trova a condividere quel poco che rimane del suo habitat con una "mandria" di Trachemys scripta.

La testuggine palustre europea (Emys orbicularis) è considerata severamente minacciata di estinzione in diverse nazioni europee e pertanto considerata specie protetta.

Mentre nel passato veniva cacciata dall'uomo per scopi alimentari, oggi è principalmente minacciata dal progressivo scomparire del suo habitat naturale dovuto al prosciugamento delle zone umide e alla regimazione dei corsi d'acqua. Risente, come tutto l'ecosistema acquatico, del progressivo inquinamento delle acque, in particolare dell'immissione negli ambienti acquatici di sostanze tossiche quali i pesticidi ed i diserbanti. Altra rilevante minaccia è costituita dalla soppressione della vegetazione riparia effettuata con mezzi meccanici che ferisce gli esemplari adulti e ne distrugge i nidi.

I found this sea turtle resting on the shores of a beach on Hawaii's Big Island. Truly incredible and peaceful creatures.

Snorkeling with a Green Turtle in the Red Sea Egypt is a very special experience.

 

It made clear how small we people actually are. There are other creatures on our planet that need protecting and these belong to the species which need just this.

 

While floating in the water right next to this really huge turtle I managed to get this shot with the underwater camera which I had with me. The Fujifilm XP60 did a fantastic job and the Nik software collection helped get the most out of this photograph.

 

Very large turtle posied to launch itself in to the blue from its hiding hole - sail on my friend!!!!

Spotted a great shot across a little inlet...sunning turtles.

 

Unfortunately, the best image got away as I moved a bit closer. There were SEVEN turtles on the log, arranged almost precisely in ascending size order. Two of the larger ones plopped into the water just as I was beginning to photograph. ** drat **
