A Herd of Turtles
1

There's a small man-made pond near my house. As I was heading out for breakfast this morning, I stopped at the pond to see if there was any interesting wildlife present but there was nothing to be seen. This afternoon, I figured I'd take another look. Lo and behold, these guys were out sunbathing. At first, they all "dashed" back into the safety of the pond. Then I guess they figured out I wasn't a threat since I was standing behind an iron fence so they resumed sunning themselves. BTW, these are Red Ear Sliders (http://www.texasturtles.org/Trachemys_scripta.html).

The first brave soul returns.

Then a couple of more want to check things out.

Finally, everyone decides they want to be in the shot - jockeying for position gets serious
