Expecting fish, but turtles show up

Turtle sunning itself out by our pond. We seem to have our own private "Turtletopia". Our pond is swarming with a variety of turtles. I love watching them and trying to discover more about them. Up to now, I've only rarely seen one outside a pet shop or someone's...
