The challenge for July is Summer and what you love about it.
by Susan Latreille These two photos are from quite a few years ago but my manipulation of the out-of-the-camera shots was done this June, so I hope that qualifies them for the challenge.
I have many shots of turtles taken by the side of our county roads but these two photos are a bit special because he/she was found wandering in our front yard. Actually, it was Spencer who found it first and drew my attention and my camera to it.
After the photoshoot, we brought the turtle down to our pond.
By Yvonne Callaway Turtles sunning themselves are comical and colourful. I painted these Cooper Marsh sun worshippers based on a photo by Milo Smith.
By Susan Irving Here are my turtles for the challenge. Turtle was done with a Microsoft Draw Free App.
Turtles Conversing on a Log was done with Microsoft Fresh Paint App. Both are fun apps to play with.
By Milo Smith So, it’s turtles this time? OK it is turtle breeding season and we had to swerve to miss one on the road the other day.
I dug out some old Painted Turtle images from a couple of years ago at Cooper’s Marsh. #1 shows its painted colours better than average including under the shell.
#2 shows 7 turtles basking in the pond right behind the parking lot at Cooper’s Marsh and was the jumping off spot for Yvonne’s painting.
#3 is a very old shot (2004) taken on Ile Bizard, QC. The turtle must be fresh out of the water as its shell is glistening.
By Tina Whitman This little baby snapping turtle was actually rescued from the mower. He or she is a cutie!!
