Eastern Painted Turtle (Chrysemys picta)
Jacqui and I were driving to Adams Point this afternoon, when she spotted a painted turtle in the middle of the road. So we pulled over and I carried it across the road to the water, she snapped this photo with my old Canon Powershot Pro1. In the span of about a minute before getting back into the car we also spotted a muskrat with some vegetation in its mouth swimming in the wetland, and a great blue heron.
