Basking in the Sun

Turtles sunbathing

I was delighted to finally catch a glimpse of these turtles basking in the sun. When my mother-in-law was visiting last November she was fortunate to see them her first time visiting. I have been frequenting Lake Mirror for almost a year and had not caught them! So happy to see them. By the way, my mom was with me when I caught these. It was only her second time visiting the lake.
I am a turtle saver by nature. I have stopped traffic to save turtles. It’s in my blood.

These photographs were taken at the end of September 2012.  It seems like yesterday that these sun beauties were glistening and inviting.  I have missed you all and hope you enjoy!

Glistening Curves


Spread your Wings


Unique

I think this duck is beautiful.  When I spotted this duck I was in awe.  This was the first time I have laid my eyes on a duck with this type of unique marking.  Simply beautiful.  I hope you enjoy.

I also wanted to thank all of my supporters.  I noticed that I have had close to 1500 likes!  Personally, I do not aim for likes but must admit, it sure feels good to know that my photograph’s affect so many of you.  Thank you all so very much!!  With gratitude 🙂


Peaceful

 

I have been editing this picture for sometime.  The original was taken in color and I converted to B&W.  When I took the picture, I felt peaceful and felt the B&W depicts how I felt better than the color image.  I hope you enjoy!  Thank you for stopping by!


Weekly Photo Challenge: Solitary

Below is the picture I selected for this Week’s Photo Challenge: Solitary. I was sitting on a bench on the other side of a lake and spotted this woman looking so peaceful in solitude.  I hope you enjoy!
