Hey all- sorry no pics here, but just a quick report from the heart of Columbus at the Ohio State University-went out today and between 3:30-6:30 saw:
approx. 32 Graptemys geographica (Common map turtle)-one log has 19 on it)
approx. 5 Chrysemys picta marginata (Midland painted turtle)
approx. 3 Trachemys scripta elegans (Redear slider)
1 Apalona spinifera spinifera (Eastern spiny softshell)

This is all in the Olentangy River (affectionately known here at OSU as the "Old and Grungy" because it looks pretty gross). Despite that, still there are lots of midland painted, spiny softshell and tons of common map turtles.
take care,
Mike
