I like those Turtle Yoga moves...very healthy looking turtle.

In addition I think the turtle is making those fancy moves, is being cold blooded, he is also getting as much body surface area out to sun exposure to warm up a bit...while he basks.

A graceful turtle - that's something you don't see everyday! Terrific catch.

These shots remind me that last summer, one of the big turtles that lumber around here was crossing our street. I was afraid he might get hit, so I picked him up and put him in the yard he was aiming for. For my trouble, he peed all over my leg!
