Baby Painted Turtle
This cute little guy was staring at me as I kayaked by. He kept staring at me as I kayaked back to him and picked him up to show my dad. Not the most evolutionarily advantageous adaptations, but very sweet for me!
These guys are known for their long necks. The eyes are also quite intense looking.
This guy was much more wary of my presence...
...He jumped away when I got too close. But I thought it was awesome to catch an action shot of a map turtle!
