It ain't just birds! Part I

As Art Morris likes to remind us, "It ain't just birds!"
Yesterday, after the U.S. Formula 1 race, Jim & I headed out to Carlos. After watching the F1 cars go over 200mph on the straight-away, the turtles below were quite a contrast. I'm not familiar with the various kinds, but Jim reminded me that there are many more species than I would have imagined. See this DNR site, as well as this other one Jim came up with.
I was happy just to be in their presence enjoying their colors; the shell below reminded me of mother-of-pearl.

"You lookin' at me?!"
