The Perfect Posture for the Perfect Tan by 

I found this Painted Turtle basking on a log of a small pond. I really like how this one was laying there as you could see he/she was trying to get as much sun as possible. Also, this position allowed me to capture all the beautiful markings from which this species of turtle is named for. Please view in large if you have the time. Thanks!

This was taken at Stewart Park in Ithaca NY.

This species scientific name is: Chrysemys picta.

    Hi there Bob, awwh what a fantastic find! :) He’s a beautiful turtle! :)

    Gabe :)

  • Thanks Gabe! It is hard to capture these guys without having a glare on their shell because they’re basking all the time. So, I really liked how this one turned out.
