Turtles interest me; simply watching them is pleasurable.  On occasion I photograph them as they go about their turtle lives.

On October 24, 2017, as I was about to enter Ben Burton via a back route (marked as a jeep trail on the diagram in this entry), I noticed a turtle in my vicinity.  He went on his way and I sent on mine.

Larger turtles sun themselves on rocks in the Middle Oconee River, beside Ben Burton Park.  Photographing them can prove tricky, for turtles frequently return to the water if one has to walk through leaves to get close enough to the river bank to get a good view.  I get to observe the river turtles frequently, though.  That is fortunate.
