My son, 10, took this shot and I found it on my camera this morning. Again: . Not that I wouldnt be proud of it, I would! I simply didn’t shoot it so I cant, with good conscious, post it without making it known this is not my work.
I love the lighting, angle and composition he used here. I can tell he has the basics down. I love these shots I tend to find of his. They always touch me so deep,y, for some reason. Better than a present wrapped on Christmas morning!
This is one cool turtle! Red-eared sliders get their name from the distinctive red mark around their ear. The “slider” part of their name comes from their ability to slide off rocks and logs and into the water quickly. This species was previously known as Troost’s turtle in honor of an American herpetologist; Trachemys scripta troostii is now the scientific name for another subspecies, the Cumberland turtle.
