The turtle doesn’t move

14 a after (640x480)

I saw this yellow-bellied slider (a land and water turtle) and three of his closest friends sunbathing this weekend.  One of the other turtle’s back is in the foreground and the odd angle of the stretched out neck (no doubt to catch some more sun before winter comes) makes the image almost abstract – one wonders which way the head faces.  I prefer the monochrome because it enhances the geometry of the waves in the background, and the head seems even weirder.

Apologies to Terry Pratchett for misquoting him: THE turtle does move. Just this one didn’t.
