I love this turtle. If I were to have a pet I would want it to be a turtule! This one is very handsome! Happy Ruby Tuesday, Ann!

Leora said...

Fun angles on the turtle. I like the one where he's half in the water, half out. Nature makes such pretty turtles!

Love the turtle. Now I read that claws in front mean a male and claws in the back mean a female..So it looks like a male?

Ohh...love it. What great color on this guy.

Ruth said...

I see lots of these turtles, but never this closeup. Great colours. No wonder they are called Painted Turtles.

Whoa! that is very cool. I really like these shots of the turtle...

kjpweb said...

Love them hanging out on logs - especially when they are stacking! :)
Great shots!
Cheers, Klaus

The reds and yellow are nearly iridescent or day-glo. Stunningly detailed and, if it could be said of a turtle, striking. Stylish if plodding, and happily not camouflaged!

That's one interesting turtle! Beautiful!

Mine's HERE. Happy Tuesday!

Cute! He looks like he's hanging on for dear life.

This is the reddiest painted turtle I've ever seen. Cool!

Bobbie said...

It's obvious why this creature got the name Painted Turtle. I didn't realize they had so much red trim. Great photos for Ruby Tuesday.

Angela at mommy bytes said...

Beautiful painted turtle! You really captured the red in the first shot. I put up my first Ruby Tuesday this week.

Carletta said...

These are great images of the turtle. The red is a real surprise.

Raven said...

These are wonderful! I didn't expect the color at all. What a beauty! I love the middle photo... but it's a close call between that and the first one for my favorite.

Yrsa said...

Well again we learn something: I didn´t even know there existed turtles coloured this way... it has an almost dangerous look!

CharmaineZoe said...

Great pics and super colours. Great subject for Ruby Tuesday :-)

Nice.

I mean that in the nicest way.

Nice.

Mary said...

Love that first shot....it really shows off the color.

Snowbird said...

Beautiful shots. Great job of finding something red.

Becky and Gary said...

What a great turtle. They are so nice. I love the red colors.

Dianne said...

He's a beauty! the first photo really captures his color but the middle one is my favorite, just love the way he's hanging out.

Geraldine said...

Wow, that is one cool looking turtle! Aren't they amazing creatures. Great photos Ann, as usual.

Terrific photos, great to have such detail. Love the middle one - is it me or does he looks a little high centered? That happened to me once in my old Dodge Shadow when I foolishly went a little bit off-road with it. I'm sure turtles are much smarter about such things.

Great shots and fully explains the "painted" in turtle.

quilly said...

This is a beautiful painted turtle! I have never seen one quite this red. I wonder what it has been eating? Gorgeous.

Laura@Storytellin' Mama said...

Gorgeous shots!!!

Wren said...

Oh, nice. I've never gotten a photo that showed the red so clearly.

Minkydo said...

Beautiful creature! Beautiful pictures!

2sweetnsaxy said...

Cool! The first one really shows the red. The second one - it looks as if it's holding on for dear life :-)

Patti said...

Good job finding something red. And natural red to boot!

Cute photos. Happy Ruby Tuesday!
