However, there won't be turtles atop a rock today what with the frigid temperatures we have been experiencing in NYC.
In what Ranger Rob calls an “incredible adaptation to avoid the cold winter,” Central Park’s turtles bury themselves under mud at the bottom of frozen water bodies. There, they hibernate, conserving energy until the water thaws and it’s time to head up to warmer temperatures.
One of those bodies of water where they hibernate (which is something thy are certainly not skeptical about hibernating in is Turtle Pond.
Many turtles who frequent there have been the inspiration for one of my kaleidoscopic photographs titled, Turtle Pond. It can be seen in the image directly below which is a copy of how it appears within the kaleidoscopic gallery on my website, patriciayoungquist.com
