Growing up, my sister and I used to take a net, get in the rowboat and try to catch turtles like these at a lake near us. Painting these guys with their necks stretched out of their shells, reminded me of those days. These two turtles are sunning on a log floating at the edge of the water near some cattails, just as I remember. And often I would see one push another off into the water! It is definitely a warm day with the sun on the log, the turtles and the cattails.
