Turtle Power...With a Little Help From Their Friends

A couple of weeks ago I had a babysitting job in San Marcos.  I decided to stop at the theater building at Southwest Texas State to take some pictures of the turtles.  Okay, it's actually called Texas State University now, but I refuse to accept that!! 

Okay, I'm over it.  Moving on...  :-)

So, I went to take pictures of the turtles.  At first I only saw a couple in the water but they dove down so I couldn't see them when I got close enough for a picture.  I ended up walking all the way through the little park and at the other end I found some cute little ducks to take pictures of.

Aren't they cute??

I guess they thought it was really hot, too!

Close ups!

I took a lot of duck pictures but decided that since I was running out of time before I had to go babysit I better give the turtles one more shot.  I'm so glad I did.  I hit the jackpot!!!  There were at least 20 (probably way more) turtles in the water on the other side of the building!  The pictures aren't the best because they were in the water, but I couldn't stop taking pictures!  It was so hard to choose which ones to post!  :-)

This is just the few that I could fit in my camera range from the bridge.  There were so many turtles!!

This is one of my favorites!

I changed my mind.  This is my favorite!!!

There were a few different types of turtles out there.  I wonder what they are called.

That's all for now.  I have so many wonderful pictures of the ducks and turtles.  I could go on and on for hours! 

I hope you enjoyed them as much as I did!  :-)
