Bob Levy's Turtle Yoga class

If you saw the Marie’s posting of “Turtle Yoga” on September 27th you might have the suspicion that this image is a setup. I assure you it is not. I found these two turtles engaged in a yoga class in the same spot as the first two. I had to laugh out loud when I saw them holding the same yoga pose but now facing away from each other instead of face to face. The large turtle may be the same one in the early image but after studying both image I am now unsure what species this is. It might be a Cooter (not a Red-eared Slider as I thought) but I would be grateful to one of your readers if they could identify it. The smaller critter is definitely a Red-eared Slider unlike the smaller yoga practitioner in the September 27 posting. That one was a Painted Turtle

But Hold On! As the camera pulls away from these two subjects it reveals three turtles are actually in attendance at this yoga session. The third practitioner is also a Red-eared Slider. Perhaps this is a sign of things to come? I surely will be keeping my eye and camera out for an even larger yoga class should I find it. Until my next report please remember: don’t strain and remember to breathe.
