Southwest Metro Photo Contest: A Tale of Two Turtles

These reptiles aren’t camera shy.

Well, at least a couple of turtles in Red Rock Lake were camera ready when Marguerite Slavik was out on the Eden Prairie lake.

“I was kayaking, and most of the turtles sank into the water as I approached, but these twins remained perched on the rock, posing long enough for me to take their portrait,” Slavik says. “Since I was kayaking, I didn’t have my camera with me, so I used my iPhone.”

Twin Turtles captured first place in the Wildlife and Nature category of our annual photo contest.

Slavik regularly takes photos in the area and prefers capturing images of people, wildlife/nature and travel-related photos.
