A Spring Walk

On a lunchtime walk this week I came upon a fallen branch with ducks and turtles resting together in the sun. Before I took this photo there were several more large turtles and a couple more ducks, but unfortunately I scared them away. However, I found it a fine example of COEXISTING. Two species, one branch. HAPPY SPRING!

Spring is the time for lovers!!

Thanks for the picture. Here in Chicago it has been sunny, but very cold, the last two days. They are forecasting a warm up for this weekend and it can't come soon enough.

coexisting indeed! I love turtles, I especially love watching them when the are like this; almost like watching little kids in the water.

Maybe she's an older female turtle. You know the saying: Aahh, springtime...when a young man's fancy turns toward older women...I'd like to think she's older. ;o) What a great shot. Thanks for sharing!! (Do you take your camera with you everywhere you go??)
