Turtles at a sinkhole

These turtles were basking in the sun at this sinkhole in Orange County. This was the best picture I could get, they all spooked and jumped in the water when I got closer. I can't see from the picture exactly what species turtle they are, could be map turtles (Graptemys geographica) or painted turtles (Chrysemys picta). Picture taken March 31, 2010.
