Photo taken: Juanita Bay Park, Kirkland
"Was photographing wildlife at Juanita Bay Park and spotted three turtles on a log. Waited for some action and caught them all in similar position. Used Sony A77 camera with Sony 70-400mm G lens."
Expert says: "This image instantly brought a smile to my face. The repetition of the turtles makes this a strong nature photo. Suggestions: Crop the image from the bottom. Also, creating a greater depth of field would separate the turtles from the texture of the lily pads."
