Prettyboy Reservoir – Turtles in the Sun

Prettyboy Reservoir

While cruising around Prettyboy Reservoir, these two Turtles were observed taking in the Sun. These creatures were out on a limb in the Schoolhouse Cove area of the reservoir.

I have often seen many  ducks cruising these same waters!

Last year the Prettyboy Reservoir waters were absolutely full of Carp! This area where the turtles are was especially popular. One could look down at the water and see loads of fish grinding away!

As I write this article, I am reminded of an outdoors writer who wrote for a long time for the Baltimore Sun. His name was Bill Burton and I remember reading his articles about the outdoors, including the Prettyboy Reservoir. There is a State Park in Maryland dedicated to Bill Burton. Check it out!. Its been a long time since I have read his articles. I still miss his writing!

Digital Image of Prettyboy Reservoir - Turtles in the Sun

This Image of Wildlife on the Prettyboy Reservoir was taken September 17, 2014.

This image was taken with a Panasonic DMC-FZ150K camera. These Panasonic cameras have an Expressive mode that amplifies the colors in images. As you can see from the image below, the colors around the clouds are really drawn out!

There are three Panasonic Cameras that I favor.

Panasonic DMC-FZ150K 12.1 MP Digital Camera with CMOS Sensor and 24x Optical Zoom (Black)

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ200 12.1 MP Digital Camera with CMOS Sensor and 24x Optical Zoom – Black

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 4K QFHD/HD Zoom Digital Camera (Black)

These are actually bridge cameras that allow for point and shoot, are simple to use and have very nice features found on the more expensive cameras.

Check them out!
