See a bigger version of this photo by Duane and Shrleen Hymas of sunbathing Western painted turtles in Washington state — and take in all The Nature Conservancy’s featured daily nature images, submitted to the Conservancy’s Flickr group by people like you — at my.nature.org.

If you believe in the work we’re doing, please lend a hand.
