That there my friend is a young male Painted Turtle. The long front claws distinguish it from a female which have shorter front claws.
Great find and I would agree with Brian Parsons. It is probably a Midland Painted Turtle which is only a subspecies of Painted Turtle.
I love coming across Painted Turtles. They are one of my favourites.
What a stunning colour. Thanks for sharing.
Neat looking cricket.
The good old Pool Frog.
Cool photo. Love how it looks as if he is staring up at something.
I was about to say that is no chipmunk but then I saw it is an Indian subspecies. Fascinating.
Chipmunks are always pleasant visitors.
