Midland Painted Turtles now out and about...

I photographed this Midland Painted Turtle close to King City last weekend.   It has a distinctive black shell with dark red or orange markings.   No other native Ontario species has similar markings.   It is the only one of eight native species of Ontario turtles that is non-threatened, but it is still susceptible to the threats that other turtles face.
Please comment if you wish.
