This was the first Painted Turtle I'd seen this year and yet just a few minutes later I ran into his brother who believe it or not he was very camera shy and also very fast.
It was fun to see him/her enjoying the sun on his little piece of Real Estate.
The North American Turtle is the most common turtle. The Painted Turtle is the most wide spread native turtle of North America. They may live more than 55 years... I'm going to guess this guy may need a new piece of Real Estate in his 55 years or so.
