Last year, I posted some photos of the baskers at our wetlands in the Pacific Northwest. This is how it looks this year.

There is a new basking site right in front of the viewing platform and I have a new record for the number of turtles in one photo.

Such beautiful photos! It's great to see turtles in their natural habitat. I love the big slider in the 5th picture, with her feet stretched out behind her. All sizes and different species, resting peacefully together. We humans could take a lesson from them!

A lovely thought. I could imagine the group in photo 6 singing Kumbaya.

No Pacific ponds are around here due to bullfrogs and other nonnatives. Pacific ponds are protected and are being reintroduced to safe areas.

Gorgeous photos! I love the slider in Photo #7 (the one wedged in or shoved into an almost horizontal position - looks like he is ready to take a dive off the diving board! :-) Again, great shots!!!!

I absolutely LOVE these photos! I love how natural & peaceful they all look under the sun, enjoying each others company (or shell to climb on). Great shots! This makes me want to go my local ponds & see what different species I can find basking the day away :)
