    Spring- Reflections in the Pond - Pond Life

    With 10-11 inches of snow and ice on the pond only a few days ago, hard to believe a scene like I saw today. Grabbed my camera and it was not until I downloaded the photos that I realized that almost every photo had a beautiful reflection of the turtles and frogs. Spring is comin people, the froggies told me so!

    Great shots!
    Interesting markings - looks like stars on the turtles.

    The Spotted Turtles love this pond, sometimes as many as 7 are sunning themselves. Here is what the pond looked like just 5 days ago!!

    Nice pictures. Here we went from 6 inches of snow Monday to wearing a tee shirt while rock hunting Friday back to 3 inches of snow this morning. Crazy Minnesota weather.

    Yes, Spring is on the way, we saw two snakes today in OK.

    Nice pics. I've seen a lot of turtles too but never like the ones in your pic. Good wildlife photography.

    Thanks for sharing,

    Great pics, Don. Spring has to be in the air with the turtles and frogs sunning themselves. Just today I noticed the pecan trees budding out, lightening bugs (fireflies) flicking about in the dark and again today the 1st hummingbird, had to put up my feeders. Yep, Spring is here in south LA.
