On the Water at the Pond; Turtles and Geese


What a great day to take some photos.  On the pond, six turtles enjoyed the rays of the sun as they chilled out on a 3 square foot platform.  A clumsy webbed foot Canadian Goose decided to join the turtles.  The goose leaped onto the floating platform, springing the turtles on top of each other.  Some turtles managed to cling to the platform while a few of them took a dive.

The big bird looked at the remaining turtles as if to say sorry about that and began to preen itself as if nothing really happened.

I apologize about the rear end shots, I had no choice to compose the characters.  This was a shoot from the hip session.  Hope you all enjoyed the pictures along with the story.

    Love this, especially your entertaining commentary! Made me giggle at the thought of turtles being flung in the air.
