Underwater Turtle

Painted Turtle Swimming Underwater in the Upper Delaware River

From my aerial perch on a country bridge, I shot these ultra-hush spy photos of Secret Agent Double-0 Turtle…

She’s swimming underwater to join the vacationing throngs at sunny Turtle Island Resort, located on the base of a stanchion supporting the Lambertville-New Hope Bridge. You go, beautiful Turtle!

Painted Turtles may look awkward on land, but not in the water. Swimming against the powerful current of the upper Delaware River, she’s obviously in her element, looking graceful and curvaceous as she executes a natural free-style through the water.

This three-photo set is part of my overall collection View from a Bridge, capturing the secret world of wildlife hidden under the New Hope-Lambertville bridge that spans the upper Delaware River.
