The Straggler

There is a log out in the middle of the pond in Wychwood Park that is a favourite spot for the turtles to catch some sun but last week on a coolish day the sun had gone in and so had all of the turtles except this one. I was zooming in to catch a pic of him but he really looked as if he was watching me too.

This turtle was keeping an eye on you to make sure you photographed his best side.

Believe it or not turtles like to watch people.

Hello,

I do think they turtles watch us humans too. They are cute, great capture! Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Take care, enjoy your day! Wishing you a happy weekend.

Great photo!
Turtles definitely have their eye on me. As soon as they see me, splash! they are gone!
I have to be real quiet and sneak up on them to get photos.
Have a wonderful weekend!
