Turtle Paradise

The Red-eared Sliders that live in and around the pond where we take our daily walks provide me with an endless supply of entertainment.

They were swimming around like crazy today, and are typically seen basking along the edge of the pond, resting on a portion of a log or the edge of a bank. These reptiles seem perfectly content to share their habitat with a variety of ducks and geese. This area appears to be a niche for cast-off pets, which provides a variety of attractions for visitors with and without children in tow, carrying pieces of stale bread to feed whomever is interested.
