We live in an area with a lot of turtle habitat, much of which is criss-crossed by our favorite hiking and biking trails. On top of that, RoZ regards herself as a turtle person.
So we seem to get a lot of turtles jumping in front of our lenses, ranging from the size of a half-dollar to the size of a substantial foot-stool.
See an awesome 9-image gallery of turtles after the jump…
The images below are roughly in chronological order, starting in 1994. The set of three pictures at the end are from last weekend, and the mammoth turtle before that is from the summer of 2012.
Click on any picture to embiggen and/or view as a slide show. Arrow keys will move you thru the gallery, and the escape key will get you out.
Love these photos and love turtles. Thanks for sharing.
None of them are as big as “Stubby”
