I captured this European Pond Turtle (Emys orbicularis) and its reflection in a quiet and hidden water place. These guys like to take a sunbath on a trunk or piece of wood  but are very shy and dropping into the water if they realize any movement around. This is a female because of the yellow spotted head and eye. The males have an unicolor grey head and a brown iris.
