Came across this turtle (I think that it's a painted turtle) hanging out by himself at Marymoor Park in Redmond, WA. I think searching for wild turtles is my new favorite hobby! I am really only familiar with box turtles...I had no idea that these guys were all over Washington
I always had a good eye for turtles when I was younger. I used to watch for them all the time when we were boating on the river, which was a lot. I love seeing turtles in the wild.
I don't go on the river any more so now and then too, I watch the roads for them so I can get them to the side safely.
Love the pic.
