Very cute portrait of these two little ones taken from a nice point of view. Sharp details and nice colours in this very fine composition.
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

The European Pond is a species of terrapin I have never seen in the wild, though I have seen Mauremys caspica on Lesbos.
This is a fine sharp and well presented capture of young individuals to be released into the Poleski NP: sounds like an interesting place to visit!
Thanks for sharing this one with us,
Best wishes, Ivan

This is a valuable species of turtles which, I am glad to know, is being meticulously protected in your country.
The picture is excellent. The features of these dark coloured turtles are sharply recorded in this image.

Hi again my dear friend :)
Another wonderful photo from you and what a cute one it is!
They look adorable!!!
I remember that i found one in the last year - also a baby, and all the girls that were on a trip with us wanted to cuddle it and make photos. They sure are beautiful!
It's nice to hear that breeding programs like that are "at work" and succeed in Poland. Bravo!
Fortunately, in Romania the species is rather common in the wild and we managed to find quite a lot of them during our field trips. Yet, it's a good thing it is protected by law, because otherwise people would probably just take them home...
The photo you have here shown these two funny babies well, with good details and lighting. I also like their pose and that they both seem very active, not affraid of your presence [as was my photo of the adult :(( ]
Cheers and TFS

A cute pair for sure. Their tails seem to be long, no? Photo is excellent, as usual. You nailed the flash exposure just right. I'm glad to read that the protection efforts are paying off.
