Painted Turtles are out and can be seen sunning themselves almost everywhere. Just about every pond has a population of these turtles. On any given day you can catch them sitting on a rock or log soaking up the sun.
In a short while (I'm guessing about 2 weeks) they will be starting to dig out nests in the sand to lay their eggs. I hope the weather warms and stays warm enough for them to do so.
Thank you for visiting my site. I consider myself to be lucky living where I do. Everyday I wake up to a wealth of interesting visual scenarios. Most of my pictures are Wildlife and Nature taken from around the area. The area specifically being Fort Frances Ontario on beautiful Rainy Lake. Feel free to comment on what you see. I look forward to hearing from you. If you like what you see, please rate it. Better yet, bookmark the site and drop back often. I will be posting daily.
