A superb shot. Love that out-of-focus backdrop. An all-time classic from 5th Dimension. Cheers very much for posting to 'Sight and Sound', Scott.

Wonderful close-up. I love these little guys. We used to live near Spreckel's lake, and there was always a contingent of them sitting on turtle rock (as we called the cement figure of a turtle at the west end.)

Turtle Rock

Yep. "Turtle Rock." Funny, I don't think I ever photographed it. This one's cute, but it's even cuter when you have half a dozen of different sizes.
When they drained the lake some years ago, they had to relocate the turtles then bring them back. At least, I think that's what happened ....
