Turtle Reflection | Great Dismal Swamp National Wildlife Refuge

I photographed this Turtle in the Great Dismal Swamp National Wildlife Refuge in southeastern Virgina along the coast area. I wanted to capture his eye in the real image as well as in the water…….. I believe this adds to the image in the reflection. Yellow-bellied and spotted turtles are commonly seen in ditches throughout the refuge. An additional 56 species of turtles, lizards, salamanders, frogs, and toads have been observed on the refuge.
The Great Dismal Swamp NWR consists of over 111,000 acres of forested wetlands. Lake Drummond, a 3,100 acre natural lake, is located in the heart of the swamp. Outside the boundaries of the National Refuge, the state of North Carolina has preserved and protected additional portions of the swamp, as the Great Dismal Swamp State Natural Area.
