Turtle unfurled

On my kayak outings I meet a lot of turtles. Last year I got a lot better at photographing them. This was taken in September when it seems every one of them is trying for every scrap of weak, end-of-summer sun they can. With the long lens it’s possible to leave them relatively undisturbed while they stretch. So many of them were like this it was like some big yoga studio. Hilarious and I love them.

Hey…I’ll work up to birds someday! Gotta start with what I can handle!

Wow! Both his feet are in the air! Looks like he’s doing handstand push-ups! Beautiful colors and composition.
