Just because…

… I think he’s handsome. A painted turtle I crossed paths with this summer in the Pine Barrens. I wish I knew more about turtles and saw them more often. Other than this type, or the Diamondback Terrapins that turn up once in a while in a crab trap, or the cranky Snapping Turtles I see in local ponds – I know nothing of turtles. They seem pretty likeable and don’t mind posing for photos, either.

  1. Turtles always make me smile. They are so patient. We humans pick them up and look them over and try to determine what we should do with them when we find them in unlikely places – then we put them down, and they just go on wherever it was they intended to go in the first place.
