Default Turtle in virginia

Hi. I am temporary in Virginia and visited a park close by.
Does anyone know what kind of species this is, could it be Eastern river cooter / Pseudemys concinna ?

No but that's a lovely photo!

I might pretend to know something and say it's a yellow eared slider.

No such thing! Only a Red Eared Slider or a Yellow Bellied Slider, although neither of these

A Stinkpot/Common Musk are nothing like that at all.
