After a month of being unable to get out and take photos (horrible!), I was thrilled to get out yesterday morning to seek out Mandarin Ducks in S. CA. No Mandarins, but some lovely Wood Ducks. However, while looking through my viewfinder to photograph the ducks, this guy popped up. Not earth shattering, but fun although even with a 5.6 aperture, the grasses were too close to the turtle to get a nice background blur. The turtle was in heaven basking in the sunlight emerging through the trees.

Hello Melissa

Great perspective that makes this shot work well! Terrific exposure, normally the underside is in heavy shadow but I think the water reflected light up under the shell which gives nice details.

Very nice shot. Excellent lighting, color and composition. The grass, rock and water make a nice environment for the composition. Don't see many turtles on this site. We need more.
