Instinctively I’ll stop the car and run into the road to save a poor, misguided Eastern Box turtle from harm. Look at that turtle lady go! Yep, that's me.
Why are they all facing in the same direction?
Life is full of surprises. Oh, I’d rather not be surprised but I’ll admit that most of them are usually pleasant.
The Hooded Mergansers have arrived and I have been trying to get near them without a bit of luck. For the past few weeks it has been overcast, gray, and actually dark quite often in Charlotte but I’ll show these photos anyway because a few of them contain a pair of turtles. I laughed out loud because, again, I was unaware.
Cute Mallard, cute duck feet. (no turtle)
And there goes his girl. I stood in the rain and waited for the couple to come together. They did, far, far, away...
After reviewing the last few photos, the miniature paddle boat/canoe/raft/blind idea is sounding real good to me. Hmmm.
