"Photographers see the world rather than just look at it."
They always seem to crawl together catching the warmth of a lamp.
Looks they are all looking to the wall with perhaps their food. Vandermeer sounds really dutch but we write it with spaces in between like van der Meer. Its a real american habit. Nice that you can bring your turtle to a winter garage but perhaps as owner you have to think about it before you start keeping them.
Nice way to make new friends for the winter.
I never knew there were so many people who have a turtle at home.
How do they tell them apart? A tag?
All the turtles have names. Just call out their name and they will come running to you. :)
Ha! I didn't know plant nurseries could be turtle nurseries too!
Now here's a bit of info that you will find most fascinating :) A group of turtles is called a "bale." Many people use the term "herd" to refer to a group of turtles. No matter what species, all turtles belong to the order Testudines.Seems that the shop keeper has baled out of keeping more turtles
Haha...I bet they love it! It's like sending your kid to camp!
Do people mark their turtles so they are sure they get the same one back? Never heard of turtle day care!
So, now I'm wondering how they recognize their turtle when they retrieve it.
So every winter the turtles can look forward to going to Turtle Camp. How fun. I like your response to Luis' question.
Are you sure it's a nursery? It looks more like a gas station...A Shell station. ;)I had no idea people did this. It's a good idea. And your photos of these painted sweeties are wonderful.
Perhaps the turtles enjoy the company of other turtles. Someone has made a business out of turtle care.
I would like to know how they tell them apart too. I can't believe they come to their name, Andy! ;-))
There's a first for me: snow-bird turtles!
That's a good idea! These turtles look like real characters, and I like the amount of detail that closeup shots provide.
That's a new one on me, a turtle holiday camp...well spotted...
Wow! I didn't know places did that. It's nice they take them in for the winter.
This is an interesting discovery. I never thought about where turtles go up north in the winter.
