One touch of nature makes the whole world kin.

Impressive sunset, Sylvia ! On the second picture, I first thought that the tree was a gator... Then I saw the turtle... ^^

Oh wow, Sylvia. Your images are, as always, stunning. I especially love the reflection of the sky and trees in the second shot. I hope you're having a great weekend. Greetings from Jo, South Africa (for now...)

Yahoo, my favorite...turtle on a log in water! The only thing better is a duck and a turtle together on a log in the water, and I know you have posted some of those at other times.
Thanks for making my day! (I haven't seen a wild turtle in years and years.)

The setting sun has made a sun-trail to your feet .... Beautiful!

Ruth Kelly said...

I didn't even notice that turtle in your lake shot and had to take a second look. It almost looks like part of the log. Love the sunset cascading over the water.

Kay said...

Another glorious sunset.

Kay said...

Beautiful sunset - and I especially love the turtle. It would be interesting to see how it climbed up on the log, wouldn't it?

Pictures like the first one make me ever sadder that we did not make out to Baimbridge Island this summer. My old back would;t allow me in a plane. Hope maybe next year I will be able to make the trip. genie

I wonder if a photo like this gave rise to the phrase "a bump on a log?"

A turtle's very slow
I've never seen one run
They like to lay about
And soak up lots of sun.

Still, it's hard to catch one
Floating in a lake
It will see you coming
And dive in like a snake.

Then it's "Bye, bye, Turtle,
"Hope to see you once again.
We're making turtle soup
And we need you in the pan!"

But you'll never catch it
Though an alligator can
So if you catch the gator
It's two for one, my man!
