    This is just a short video I shot today of my turtles' first day in their new home. They were originally in my pond, but since it has FINALLY gotten warm..at the end of January..they have to come in for the remainder of the cooler days. Besides that, the ducks have pooed up the pond quite a bit. I'm sure they don't like that too much. Anyhow, they're living inside with me until the Spring. So, this was their impression of their new, temporarily barren, aquarium. It's noting too serious, just a quick shoot.

    The tank is a 46g bowfront with (1) 96W PC light on top.

    Video shot with:
    D300s
    Nikon 35mm F/1.8G DX

    I've had Bertha since she was the size of a nickel. Now, she's about 11" across. The other two, George (who also happens to be a female) and Sam (the frisky one with long fingernails), are quite a bit younger, but I've had them since they were hatchlings as well.

    Anyhow, it's a bit of fun. So, enjoy!

    Btw, the videos and photos alike were at ISO1600. I was shocked how well they came out. I rarely dare to go that high.

    Those could just be particles in the water column...turtles and other biota can make a tank dirty pretty quick ;) Nice photos Mark.

    Particles in the water indeed. You can see them floating about in the video. They don't have a turtle filter as of yet, so they're dirtying the tank up pretty quickly. :er:

    Thanks everyone!

    Lol, the one flicking his fingers all about is trying to make it into just that. But, Bertha's a bit out of his league. :blushing:
