A most excellent capture Gary!
The overall composition is pretty near perfect. I love the play of the turtle's colors against the color of the water and the fallen leaves, as well as the reflected colors of the turtle. As a matter of fact, the only thing I can find wrong is the misspelling in your thread title -

Great eye Gary! I REALLY like this. It is worth framing!
