Sunlovers...
Tom Wilson: Absolutely smile
Great shot of them - thanks for including the logs, just adds a little something!
Tom Wilson: There were dozens of the around in various places on the lake.
Climbing or sunbathing? Great capture Tom!
Tom Wilson: The latter, I think, Richard.
They always find the perfect spot for sunbathing, Tom. smile
Tom Wilson: I think pretty well all reptiles love the sun, Ginnie.

They are facing the sun, worshipping it
Tom Wilson: Their cold blood needs to be warmed up smile
They had a couple of hits in the 60s as I recall
Tom Wilson: Never heard of the group, Bill, but I'll take your word for it smile
They have decorated their surroundings quite beautifully.
Tom Wilson: He, he - I suspect is was the citizens who did the decoration smile

They must be in a special reserve or the restaurant's turtle collector is developing an eye problem.
Tom Wilson: Well the lake is in the centre of Nara, so I guess it must be a reserve; or perhaps the restaurants are allowed to cull??
His "n" hers places in the sun
Tom Wilson: And no squabbling over it smile
i see terrapins a lot in singapore too, Tom and always find them a bit amusing. great shot
Tom Wilson: I imagine you will see a lot, Ayush - it's a bit too cool for them in the UK, so they are quite a novelty for us to see them in the wild.
