Sneaking up on a Red-Eared Slider

Today I hosted my first Virtual Field Trip.  I took a 2nd grade class from Utah on a snake hike in hopes of finding a snake that emerged early from hibernation (it was 60 degree again).  No snakes but we got to see a lot of other neat wildlife including a red-tailed hawk that landed 15 feet from me.  I did the whole VFT with my iPhone and the kids loved it.  

As soon as we ended the VFT, I spotted a red-eared slider basking on a rock in the river.  I snuck up and took a short video of the turtle so I could share it with the class later.  Here is the video I got:
