Brenman Park Turtle

We spotted this guy as we crossed the bridge over the lake in Brenman Park last Wednesday or so. He came right up under us, but by the time I thought to snap a pic, he'd drifted off a bit, apparently no longer interested in us.

He and several fish came over to gaze up at us when we stopped to look down. Either it's a boring life living in that lake, and they need some entertainment, or someone tosses food to them. I'd guess the latter.

I suppose this guy eats more flora than fauna, but if I was one of those fish, I wouldn't have been hanging out so close to him. He's about a foot long and looks like he could've chased down some sushi pretty easily, if he got a hankerin' for it.
