Just floating along



This bird was floating around Lake Ella with his posse of turtles last weekend enjoying the warm weather. You can click on the picture and enlarge it to get a better look.

Oh my gosh...how funny is that?! It looks like they were torn about the situation. They really wanted to sunbath, but they really wanted to keep their distance from that feathered guy.

Nice scene.

What a pretty shot! Love the steeple in the background. The turtles look like they are hitching a ride! Congratulations to your daughter and her band - that's fantastic and I bet they are ready to pop with excitement! Kat

Our own little drainage pond/lake. What would we do without it?

Hi Lois, It reminds of 'up a lazy river' with Mark Twain narrating the tune.

This is a humorous take on pond life.

Very cute capture! I also like the way you repeated the movement through the fountain and church steeple. Quite lovely!
