Cold-Blooded but still an Animal

Today is theme day at City Daily Photo. The theme is, simply, 'animals.' Dogs were tempting. But they've gotten their time. And we've already shown nutria. Twice. Birds have abounded. But it's been a long time since a turtle showed up so here is one of the Lady Bird Lake mud turtles, sunning himself on a log recently to soak up some warmth. Taken near Lou Neff point.

  1. My little sister used to keep a few turtles when we were kids. Sadly here in Yorkshire there are no turtles in the wild.

  3. Hi Forrest, I think a turtle is a perfect choice--turtles have been underrepresented on City Daily Photo and it's about time.

  5. We have turtles here, but they are all hiding in the mud to avoid freezing! Wonderful photo!
