Chrysemys picta picta
I just barely snapped this photo of these painted turtles before they slipped back in the water. Super skittish as can be seen by photo number two taken 2 seconds later.
Scientific name added.
Hi there. Since you know the identity of your organism, please go ahead and fill in the scientific name field. This allows the spotting to fully enter the database and become complete, letting groups and individuals use the data and find your spotting. It also takes the spotting off the "unidentified" list. Thank you!Here's a great Project Noah blog entry that explains the spotting process:http://blog.projectnoah.org/post/2870249...
