I always look forward to the snapping turtle mating season, when they wander around looking for friends or places to lay eggs or something. This morning I had my camera out in case the cat showed up. A movement caught my eye, and at first I thought it was an armadillo. But nope, it was this traveler.
We see these often, as readers are aware, but this was a good chance to get nice pictures, since I’d caused my buddy to stop ambling.
I’d wanted a good rear view of a common snapping turtle, so this gave me a great opportunity. Thanks for holding still, pal.
We have other visitors. I did finally get a blurry picture of the cat who’s hanging around here.
Barn swallows are the loudest visitors. We love them and their nests on our patios anyway. They do eat bugs!
And here’s a couple I found while looking for new flowers.
More later. I have a bunch of horse pictures.
