Turtles on Tuesday-Painted Turtles

“Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away. For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone; The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land.”

Tuesday Turtles

I recently stopped by the Rio Grande Nature Center In Albuquerque, New Mexico to see what was going on there. I enjoyed the Red-eared Sliders and Painted Turtles basking in the sun at the Visitor’s Center pond.
