Expecting warbler mania? Well, this past weekend was the major fallout for warblers in Columbus. I've been hearing buzzing and warbles here and there in the evenings, but Sunday morning was awesome for warblers. It was also awesome for turtles! I literally saw dozens basking along the banks. Here's a little turtle quiz. There are three species pictured here. The question. Which species are in the photo, how many of each species are there, and which ones are which species? This post is partially inspired by Mary at faith, fabric, and photos who asked me to ID some turtles on her blog! If you don't know the names, can you separate the three species? And can you see how huge these things are? The mallard duck is in the photo for a size reference. Have fun, I love turtles, I hope you do to.
Hints: This photo was taken this past Sunday on the Olentangy River behind our house here in Columbus, Ohio, which is a relatively small tributary to the Scioto. I've posted the photo at full resolution, clicking on the photo will allow you to view much more detail in the image.
