Photo of the Week: Peninsula Cooter
Stay or Spin?
Jessie Dickson was sneaking down to the water’s edge at Ritch Grissom Memorial Wetlands in Viera, Florida, to photograph a bird when he noticed this young peninsula cooter. "Normally, I can’t get close to the turtles at wetlands since they are very skittish and dive into the water at the slightest provocation," the local resident said. "This little guy seemed not to care at all that I lay down close to him." Dickson used a Nikon D80.
