Two pictures from the same spot on two very different days

Here during the 'magic' hour - the last hour of sunlight, the light is amazingly soft.

It was a warmish day... you can see two turtles sunning themselves. There is a river otter just behind swiming in circles and well beyond is a group of canada geese and american coots. Everyone is having a good time...


that was a couple of days ago and this is today - same exact spot only today is windy and cold... no one is having fun, but me!

Nice photos. love the otter. Have some around here, but you have to be around at just the right time to see them.

Water is amazing. I live on a river and it never disappoints me with its changeability. Wind, sun, rain, clouds, sunrise, sunset—everything creates a new river outside my door every time I look. You can't cross the same river twice? Heck, you can't even LOOK at the same river twice.



And we should consider every day lost on which we have not danced at least once.

You should blur out the second one and start your own Nessie rumor...

Those blue-backed turtles are gorgeous. I think I can see them in the bottom picture, its just that they are SO well camouflaged... ;)

When I visited my brother in Mississippi one June, we kept seeing turtles sunning themselves like that, but each time that we simply stopped the car, not even getting out, to get a better look they would quickly disappear into the water. Mississippi turtles don't take kindly to strangers. :-)

same here - I didn't even know there turtles in this pond until I got a 35x zoom camera. Solved a very long running mystery. What the heck is that splash that I'd so often hear when I rounded a bend. SOMETHING jumped in the water the very second I appeared. I always assumed it was frog, but now I know...

To be honest, neither do Mississippi humans.
