Lots of them. Almost caught one. They were all on a rock that looked like a turtle. I thought that was pretty funny.

sunrise hike to cattail pond. This is the biggest turtle head I think I have seen in cattail pond. At first glance it looked like a log sticking up out of the water. It was at least 6"in diameter
