Hi Yves, I too love the reflections in the calm water and the glistening of the turtles as they soak up the sun. Very nice compo.

Very good shot in so many ways Yves. I especially like how their shells glimmer in the sun against the pristine surroundings and the poses you caught them in. Hope they didn't suffer any consequences from viewing the eclipse too :)

Don't worry Heather, the story is a scenario. The shot was done few days after the event. I wrote the little story because those turtles always sunbath with the heads up.

Love it, Yves!! Love the still water and reflection. Great job!!!

I never miss an oportunity to do a minimalist shot like that one.

Description
Just a few minutes before the last total eclipse of the sun these painted turtles were on the spot and looking up at the great event. Nobody ever told them how dangerous it is to look at it without special glasses.
