Painted turtles

According to my desktop calendar, today is World Turtle Day. So, here are some Eastern painted turtles!

Now that the afternoons are getting warm, the turtles come out to bask. Their shells are covered in the stuff on the pond's surface - algae or whatever - as they lie on the cattail stalks that have fallen over, and watch the muskrats bustle about.
