It seems the rush hour traffic has caused a minor fender bender. These turtles made an interesting subject, as they do seem to be waiting for something. Any one out there speak "Turtlese"?......... I'm sorry I haven't submitted any images lately; I've been laid up with a wounded back for the last little while. I seem to be on the mend, so I should be submitting more, on a regular basis. I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

This is great Michael! It reminds me so much of Frogger... you almost expect to see a frog on one of their backs with a shore in front and on the other side an alligator or 2 ;-) Impressive and well done! :)

the one on top of the lead one makes it absolutely wondeful. I would of loved to see that turtle just flapping away trying to move...maybe just spinning. I can just imagine him doing that and I can't help but laugh. Fantastic picture. And get out there and get more pictures, they are always wonderful.

Oh Michael, I love this image!! I am a huge fan of turtles and this is such a great shot...I see them like this often when I go canoeing, but can never quite get a good shot of them from the moving canoe! I'm so glad you captured this! Definitely into my favorites! Hope you are feeling better :)

But words are things, and a small drop of ink, falling, like dew, upon a thought produces that which makes thousands, perhaps millions think and smile. Art is everywhere, except it has to pass through a creative mind.

I think the turtles are saying, "why swim when you could just ride around on a log?" seems crowded, though. the one on top probably thinks he's hot stuff because he's got the most room.

you know, they remind me of the seven dwarfs from the snowhite fairy tale.. there are seven turtles on this shot and i can imagine them like those little fellows on their way to the mines singing "hey-ho" :D

great details on their mails.. and a hillarious shot, it really made me laugh looking at these little turtles :))) also, beautiful vivid colours, especially the green water!

thank you for this image.. awww :)) it put a huge smile on my face :o)
