The number of photographs I take per week has decreased lately because I am transitioning from frequent walker to frequent runner (to prepare for two half-marathons in the fall). However, I still walk once or twice per week along the Thames River in London, Ontario, and my eyes are growing accustomed to spotting various types of turtles found along the river banks, often sun-bathing or stretching their legs.
Here are a few photos from along the way, depicting the setting and three or four types of local turtles (some prefer to be called tortoises as well).
