Turtle Tank

Turtle
I took this photo while kayaking yesterday in Maryland.



Turtles are one of my favorite creatures. 



The challenge in photographing them while they sun tan on the tree trunk is that when you get to close they simply dive into the water. 



This one turtle was a little older and larger, and was basically fearless. 



We paddled right up to him and  he held steady there.



So awesome–turtles live in and by the beautiful water, have a tank-like protective armor, and are basically peaceful loving.



While I never got into the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, I think the real ones are all that. 😉
