Painted Turtle, Mason County, MI, April 2011
the painted turtle is the most common pond turtle. Note yellow stripes on the side of the head and red markings on the edge of the shell. Most Midland Painted Turtles have a dark splotch in the middle of the plastron (under shell). This particular one does not.
