Camera Critters and Saturday's Critters

Pickwick Lake, Tennessee, USA, September 14, 2015


I think this may be a Yellow-Bellied Slider, but I am not sure. Very handsome, isn't it?

I'd Rather B Birdin'
Pied-Billed Grebe, Guntersville, Alabama, USA, September 11, 2015
Found on lakes, ponds and marshes all across the United States and parts of Canada, Grebes eat fish, small aquatic animals, and insects.

 
They have an amazing ability to adjust their buoyancy, and can sink down until only their heads are above the water.

Scenic Week-Ends
Pickwick Lake, Tennessee, USA, September 14, 2015
The birds on the peninsula are Canada Geese.

  4. The turtle has such fancy shell and skin markings, Lea. The grebe is so cute, I would like to see one.

  10. That is a pretty turtle! I'm not any kind of expert on slider i.d.s, so I just call them sliders usually.

  13. Each and EVERY photo this weekend....superb. I do love watching the pied-bills as they look like they're really enjoying the play in water, diving, coming up....like ballet in water.

    thank you for adding your link this week at I'd Rather B Birdin'
