Peace Valley Park, No. 7, More Turtles

A month, maybe two months or more back, I posted some pictures of turtles on logs in a small pond in Peace Valley Park near Doylestown, Pennsylvania. That was before spring had really begun so there were no visible plants growing in the pond. So I thought I'd show some more turtle pictures from maybe two weeks ago. As you may have guessed by now, turtles fascinate me. The turtles were a little more bashful this time with some them disappearing at the slightest sound.

The four turttles clung to the trunk are looking like getting away from a wreck ! Amusing.

Thanks, minka. Too cold for the turtles in Iceland, huh? It would be neat to publish a book of my photos. But it would be a lot of work. I know. Back in 1995 and 1996, I wrote a history of my home church that was published for our 250th anniversary celebration.

Hi, ginnie. I guess the turtles like the rays of the sun as much as many of us humans do. :)

Hi, cergie. Great imagination. I love imagination.

Hey Tim.Ohh these pics are amazing! Turtles are stunning creatures and teach us that 'patience' is a virtue. Love this post Tim !

Thanks, kristi. One could almost envy the life of a turtle. But I'm sure they face more hardships than we know.

Thanks, consise10. Patience is a virtue when we can actually practice it. ;)
