Two Types of Painted Turtles (Three Photographs)
To view more of my photography please click on www.rakmilphotography.com
There are two types of painted turtles, those who realize that distance between them and the human staring at them affords security, and those whose fear drives them to take a dive the instant they see anyone regardless of how far away. Clearly for the photographer and naturalist the latter can be somewhat frustrating. Fortunately, this behavior does not seem to be universal.
