Just A Little Turtle

When I visited Descanso Gardens the turtles at the lake were out chilling along the side of the small lake. It was a great photo opp for some close-ups.

I was looking at these guys, and the name red eared turtle popped into my head. Maybe that is what they are?
Other than adoreable! I like the third shot, where you are so close you can really see the facial features!
