Turtle and Fishes

This is a photograph of a turtle swimming amongst fishes. What is interesting to me is that although it is in water the top of its shell is completely dry! What a great swimmer that it can be in water and bask in the sunlight and still not get wet!

I took the photograph in Freeport, Bahamas.

According to Wikipedia, “Turtles are reptiles of the order Testudines characterized by a special bony or cartilaginous shell developed from their ribs and acting as a shield.”

Spikes

Spikes

I took this photograph while hiking in and around Mesa, Arizona. The cactus is full of spikes and prickly thorns. Although it is full of spikes, there is beauty in this nature too.

According to Wikipedia, “In plant morphology, thorns, spines, and prickles, and in general spinose structures, are hard, rigid extensions or modifications of leaves, roots, stems or buds with sharp, stiff ends, and generally serve the same function: physically deterring animals from eating the plant material.”
