We are having some wonderful fall weather right now, with cooler days in the 80s instead of high 90s (F.). The sun is shining, there’s a nice breeze… it’s beautiful out there!
Even the turtles in the pond are enjoying sunning themselves…
But wait! There wasn’t just one turtle, or even one KIND of turtle! There were two turtle youngsters right close to each other.
I’m not sure what sort of turtle the one on the left is. The shell is covered with stuff, so it could be a Painted Turtle or an Eastern Chicken Turtle.
But this one I’m pretty sure is a snapping turtle.
We see a big snapping turtle in the pond once in a while, or going walkabout.
This turtle is pretty easy going.
Not all snapping turtles are mean and aggressive!
At any rate, we end up with little turtles in the pond from somewhere!
