Along the same stretch of fluorescent green algae-covered water, two creatures co-exist without giving each other much thought. Both remain quiet, the turtle lazily soaks up the sun on its sandy shell, keeping one beady eye on my camera while down the log a bit a Green Heron stands perfectly still ready to nab the next unsuspecting fish. Too lethargic or too busy, they both courteously gave me enough time to snap these photos to share and I was grateful.
