Trachemys scripta elegans, Santa Barbara CA

Part of this nature class requires us to find out exactly what kind of animal or bug or plant we’ve photographed… in essence, labeling. Correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe this turtle is officially called “Trachemys Scripta Elegans”. There were a good 6-8 turtles in this pond (Alice Keck Park Memorial Garden in Santa Barbara, CA) and they were being quite friendly!

Either way… have you ever seen their eyes? Yea, me either. Managed to capture some fairly unique shots (in my opinion).

Also, the obligatory wide shot of Alice Keck Park Memorial Garden — yes, her name actually is Alice Keck Park.

Photographs taken around 5:30PM.
