The painted turtles were out sunning themselves a lot earlier than any of us anticipated. They are not yet as cute as they will get as the summer progresses. Eventually everything will go green and the painted turtles will be an important part of the natural theater. Photographing turtles is never easy, their shells almost always reflect back the sun, and their faces are hard to focus on because of their dark nature and small size. The former can be edited to a degree and the latter takes a bit of skill to get into position for the best light. It’s worth it because painted turtles do not “smile”, they have a consistent disgruntled if not angry look that adds to their charm.
