(July 29, 2016) Broken record on the matter of color, I know.
These two photos just came in from our field crews. I realize I talk too much about color found on Conservancy preserves, but here are two more examples of the extraordinary colors we see in nature on them. These are completely unretouched photos.
They have received no embellishment or enhancement. The aquatic vegetation that covers the turtle on the second of the two photos is not at all permanent. As soon as the little character submerged and swam off, the shell was clear of debris and vegetation.
