WHY DID THE TURTLE CROSS THE ROAD?

in photography •  2 months ago 

Actually, she didn't. I picked her up on the way.


In the spring in the Ozarks the box turtles come out of hibernation and begin to move around once again. Often, you can see them trying to cross the road. Many never make it, and become victims of the automobile, but this one didn't make it for another reason.

This one was picked up and brought back to our property. I wanted to show it off to our children, and to release her here on our homestead. She was rather photogenic, as the photos below will verify. Enjoy!

I can tell by the smile on her face! I love seeing children growing up in nature and exploring their surroundings. Turtles are by the way really cool animals!

Hello...
@papa-pepper
Awesome...!!!
It's not that time of year here yet...but I do stop and help them get across the road. Snapping Turtles included. As you mentioned alot of them don't make it.

WE saw a big snapper that didn't make it on Saturday.... poor fella.

Poor fella..indeed...!!!!
It's sooo sad to see with the Turtles and Frogs...!!!!
:(

Apart from being cute, do they perform a useful task around the estate?

·

Well, they do like to eat bugs, but other than that, we just like them. Oh, the turtle races are coming up too!
