Friends

Enjoying the shy sun on the banks of the big pond at Quinta da Alagoa Park.
Turtles are coming out of hibernation; I didn't see any a week or two ago.

Friends, and such close friends! Life at the pond seems good.

A little sunshine to warm the soul and in this case the feathers and the shells.

Que lindo:) Inicialmente parecia me "art" still life!

Very cool photo. I wonder if the duck fell after her/his large turtle friend went into the water? :)

This is a cute shot. The turtles must have a hard time climbing on those rocks.

I'm certain Luna would love to play with those friends!
God bless you!

I think the duck and the turtles were having a "playdate."

The turtles must have come out of hibernation because they anticipated the warm sun.

I notice that the duck is paying no attention at all to those turtles! The sun may have put all of them to sleep!

I have heard of 'Turtle Doves' but not Turtle Ducks. MB
