Looking ahead to next week: 2014 Panini Golden Age Historic Signatures.
Since this post was kind of short, I'm gonna add some bonus content to pad it out a little:
|The bottle was for scale.|
Not surprisingly, the turtle wasn't too keen on cooperating. But after about 40 minutes, he (or she) was safely gotten in to a rolling tote, which was then picked up and taken to the creek in the front of our property. I would have liked to have taken it to the part of the creek that goes through the woods, but being the time of the year that it is, I don't fancy the thought of running into any poisonous snakes -- not to mention all the ticks -- so there weren't too many options.
I couldn't get any pictures of the turtle once we got over to the water because when I got too within about 20-30 feet from the waterway, the turtle could smell the water and started to get very antsy. As soon as the tote was laid down, the turtle made a mad dash for the water, and was gone before I could even think to get my cell phone out.
Just another typical morning in the middle of nowhere :)
Thanks for taking a moment to look at my page.
