April Theme Day: Wet


A cormorant spreading its wings out to dry while a few turtles are sunning themselves on one of the floating barges in the middle of Lake Ella.

The first day of the month is Theme Day in the City Daily Photo Community and this month the theme is "Wet". Be sure to visit the CDP Theme Day Gallery here to see other members' interpretations of the theme.

Also linking to Saturday's Critters, Camera Critters, and The Bird D'Pot.

Somehow cormorants amaze me, and I love seeing them stand with their wings spread this way. Nice catch together with the turtles, Lois!

This is a "wet" scene you can see repeated in many of Florida's lakes. Nice shot, Lois!

What a pose! I do wonder what birds and turtles think of each other when in such close proximity.

I always love to see turtles in the wild like that!

Lea said...

I see the turtles are keeping to their end of the raft and the cormorant is at his! There is probably a dividing line there that only they know about
Hope you are having a great day!
