More wildlife was photographed today — This time it was a “convention” of turtles – 10 of them sunning together on the bank of the lagoon. You’d think that turtles being slow moving would be easier to photograph, but it isn’t that way for me. They seem rather skittish of humans. Even from a good distance away, they sense your presence, and flop into the water without warning. As quietly as I could, I walked over to get the photo of them, but this is as close as I was able to get before four of them disappeared into the lagoon. I gather that turtles could be a gator snack, so I guess they need to be wary of sounds coming towards them…
