Notes

Found a large cattle tank that was full of algae. There were many turtles poking their heads up out of the water. All different ages and sizes from young babies to large adults. Pic 1 is a look at the turtles poking their heads out of the water (there are two - one in front center, the other in back next to the log), Pic 2 is of a baby that was so covered with algae it couldn't open its eyes, and pic 3 is of a large adult in the crotch of a log in the water.
