Painted Turtle - Chrysemys picta basking on a cold sunny day late November

There were 2 Painted Turtles basking in this wetland on a sunny 44f windy day at the end of November. Not What I expected to see on my walk.

That seems incredibly cold for a turtle to be out and about.

This turtle is probably wondering why it's so warm the last week of November (hit 70 degrees here today).
