I took a shot with a "point and shoot" at this same location the previous day.
I went back today with better camera gear to get more facial detail on the turtles since that was part of yesterday's discussion. Two images posted.
Not sure if these are pond sliders or something else.

Pseudemys is a genus of large, herbivorous, freshwater turtles of the eastern United States. They are often referred to as cooters, which stems from kuta, the word for turtle in the Bambara and Malinké languages, brought to America by African slaves.
