Sunbathing Turtle 

Sunbathing above the water, this Western Painted turtle enjoys the warm rays of the summer sun. The light makes the colors from the turtle’s shell and body jump out in this close-up shot. Plus, it looks like a pretty relaxing way to spend the afternoon. Thanks to user Ruby Photography for submitting this photo to MOTHER’s See You photo-sharing website! Take a closer look at nature with more photos in her gallery.
