A Muddy Turtle


 This Painted Turtle looks as if he had to crawl through some mud to get up into the sunshine but he was certainly enjoying the warmth on his back. I took pics from a lot of different angles and he paid me no heed.

That turtle looks perfectly happy in its element with the warmth of the sunshine. Good to see this amphibian doing well.
