Florida red-bellied cooter -Week 18 – Theme 14 Humor



I have tried and tried to get good pictures of the turtles that hang out in the pond in the cul-de-sac on my street. I am pretty sure they are Florida red bellied cooters based on their striped eyes. They tend to just peek their noses out, I’ve yet to capture one out of the water. I was pleasantly surprised to see that while I still did not get much of this turtle, I did manage to get a red dragonfly landing on his nose (and in the reflection)!

Circles against the Sky – Week 5 Theme#22 Circles.


This picture was taken this morning after a pontoon boat ride at Myakka River State Park. It was a gorgeous morning at one of my favorite local spots to take pictures.  I was able to take shots that fill so many of the categories of the 52 Week Challenge, especially, Straight Out of the Camera (SOOC).  I decided instead of taking the easier option of SOOC, to go for “Circles” since it is the first thing I think of when I see this photo. It is basically SOOC except I adjusted the lighting and cropped it a bit.
