Our backyard is a popular hangout for painted turtles :) Although I love all turtles, painted turtles always win in the beauty department.

This is a great capture of one. He looks very determined (hence the great title, I suppose!)

All I could think of was Zoolander and his "Magnum" face when I saw this turtle pose :)

Thanks!

I own a turtle very similar to this one!
Only mine's not a painted turtle.
He's a normal Yellow-Bellied Slider.
