Swim at Your Own Risk

I see them all the time.  Snappers and other turtles.  After a while you see the irregularities in the water - even if it is just a head sticking up out of the water.  I don't think the river is loaded with them and there is no way of knowing, but this could be the same one that made the mud trail posted a couple of days ago.  It is facing into the tide and the water displacement makes it look like he might be bigger than he really is.  The arrow on the right marks where I think the crown of his shell is located and the arrow on the left marks the eddies produced from paddling his back feet.  Tomorrow, I'm going to post something I saw the day after taking this photo.
