Turtle High Dive

A red-eared slider turtle was sunning on the end of a log sticking high (relatively speaking) above the water in Lake Tamarack (see photo below).  As I tried to get closer to get a better shot, it dove straight off the end into the water.  I wish I had been quick enough to get a picture of the dive; I’d score it a 9.
