Signs Of Spring II
On my quest to find signs of spring for my little series "Signs of Spring", I wandered over to the pond to see what the willow tree was up to. I noticed over the weekend it was starting to bud. While walking up to the pond I heard "plop, plop, plop" and realized I had just startled the turtles while they were sunning. I squinted, trying to spy more turtles across the way and then heard a plop at my feet and noticed another turtle swim away that had been sitting right there on the log in front of me! So I started to make my way to the other side of the pond and stepped out in an area to look and see if there were any more turtles around when I spotted this little guy! I quickly tried to focus in when I noticed my camera was on the wrong setting, not sure what the correct setting was but pretty sure the "landscape" setting wasn't it. He patiently waited till I got my act together, took 2 pictures, then he dove in.
