Off to an early start this morning so I could spend the day at home.
|~Part of the gang this evening~|
As I was rounding the last corner for home, I saw a turtle on the side of the road. It was on its back in the full sun and was looking pretty toasted. I thought it was probably dead, but since it's my habit to always stop for turtles, that was what I did. It was just a young snapping turtle about the size of my hand. Its neck was stretched out and to the side and his little claws were all curled in and motionless. Of course I couldn't help but feel a little sad and sorry for the poor thing.
