Today, a turtle

juvenile turtle likely eastern river cooter Pseudemys concinna concinna perched on rock in early morning light
Likely an eastern river cooter (Pseudemys concinna concinna,) even though we were not on the Eastern River, but the Eno River instead; it’s probably them damn unoriginal biologists wanting to call everything eastern, like there was some kind of east/west civil war that the east lost and still gets cranky about nearly 200 years later. This was from an outing today, about the only worthwhile frames from a slow and hot morning. I had lugged the 150-600mm along, which allowed me to get this kind of view of a turtle much smaller than my palm in the middle of the river.

I have more coming, but not from today, and not of turtles. I just wanted to post the two pics that will otherwise sit in the blog folder like orphans awaiting similar frames or subjects. Plus that one above seems to need a dramatic caption.
