Spotted these tortoises basking on their 'island rock' in the pond in Hong Kong Park.
Couldn't help noticing their synchronistic pose,
all looking up same direction as if receiving some signals !
Still wondering why they stacked on each other though. Seen lotsa tortoise do this, maybe someone could explain the mystery.

I can't resist turtles! These are cute little guys (or gals) It looks like they're about to burst into singing! they are stacked for the simple reason that one would fall off the rock if they weren't. Their claws are great for catching prey and fine for swimming, but they are lousy at holding on to rocks. They want to be in the sun to warm up because they're cold blooded. Nice, fun shot!

Amusing this rhythm. Beautiful arrest. I would have liked that the paw is not cut to the right.
Amusant ce rythme. Belle capture. J'aurais aimé que la patte ne soit pas coupée à droite.

Very interesting composition. The look of turtoises its oriented on some specific point. It seems like that they watch something very interesting. The composition its good and the group of turtoises its very attractive.
