16th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Turtles catching some sun on a beautiful afternoon.

I captured a photo of these turtles catching some sun on a beautiful afternoon while hiking the trails of the Kokomo, Indiana reservoir park. I had to be very quiet while photographing them because they would jump off the log immediately if they heard the slightest sound. After I was there for about 30 minutes they weren't the least bit affected by any sounds that I made! They were just fine with me photographing them!
