Turtles on fallen trees

In the comments for the Week in Seven Words #111, I was asked about the turtles clinging to the branch - how many and what size?

Here are a few photos. The turtles were in different groups on branches or slender tree trunks that had sunk into the lake in Central Park, NYC.

And here's another cute branch-climber I spotted:

YEESH! That's on BIG squirrel. And, oh, how I love turtles. I really love the plop plop sound they make as they disappear under the water when your canoe gets too close to their tree.

Where did you take these? Are the turtles and squirrel near your home? If yes, I so envy you to have such a sight for sore eyes. I mean, they are beautiful! There have been a lot of bad news about hurting turtles in my place, which makes me want to hurt those who hurt these harmless timid creatures. Great post!
