What is a turtle who has taken up photography called? Snapping turtle. 🙂
This past summer, on two different occasions, we came upon snapping turtles as they cautiously emerged from the cover of green grass and made the trek from one side of the country road to the other.
The first turtle stopped to bask in the sun for a while before continuing its journey across. Then it strolled through the grass, took a dive into a water-filled ditch, and disappeared.
The second turtle strolled down the road for a short time and then headed for a ditch and into a wooded area.
Later in the summer, while out walking, we found a baby snapping turtle that was sitting in the middle of the road. Afraid that it might not make it to its destination safely, we carefully helped it across the road in the direction that it was headed.
Snapping turtles are fascinating and always fun to watch from a distance.
